Hey Elena,

Before you invest time in this, a couple of questions:

 - Dariof was interested in merging this with his auto NUMA placement code.
   That piece of code does not look simple and I think he volunteered
   to do it. However he has also been busy reviewing Xen RT patches so
   I figured he hasn't yet done that.

 - Since it would interact with auto NUMA placement and expose new
   logic in libxl we run in the problem of the 'stable' API that we
   MUST preserve. That is a worry - and will require scrutinity.

 - I think (and please correct me if I am wrong) that it would require
   at least two revisions to be posted.

 - What is the impact if the toolstack patches go in Xen 4.6?

Thank you.
