Done in v2.

I've checked, as promised. TBH, as George said already, I don't see
much more room for factoring or generalizing. Certainly, not in libxl.

In xl (that would be next patch, though), I especially dislike
those main_sched_credit(), main_sched_credit2(), etc., but I think
that, given how the interface looks like, there is again few that we
can do (there's some level of generalization and indirection already,

So, again, apart from splitting coding style and functional changes, I
don't see other ways for improving this patch. If you have more
concrete ides, please share them. :-)
