With the following configuration:
vcpus       = '4'
memory      = '1024'
vnuma = [ [ "pnode=0","size=512","vcpus=0,1","vdistances=10,20"  ],
          [ "pnode=1","size=512","vcpus=2,3","vdistances=20,10"  ] ]

The error message is this one:
xl: maxvcpus < vcpus

The reason is that, without this change, we only process the first
element of the "vcpus=" list, i.e., only vcpu 0 (for vnode 0) and vcpu 2
(for vnode 1), up to a total of 2 (rather than 4) vcpus.

Basically, things only work if for each vnode, its vcpus are specified
by means of a single element.

Ok, I'll mention this in here.
