Well, the standard thing is for us to try to reach a consensus if
possible.  If there's not a consensus, I as the scheduler maintainer
would get to / have to decide; Keir or Jan might overrule me if they
thought I was being completely unreasonable, but that would be a
pretty exceptional case. :-)

That would have been my guess -- that "set up once and don't change"
was the common case.

So let's go with #1:
* Always pass an array of all vcpus
* But have some magic values which mean "don't change this one".
