The dirty count goes down after a while for a domU that constantly touches as 
many pages as it can.
But yes, the current code uses stats.dirty_count in a number of places.
It seems all of the usage is just for reporting, so if these code paths would 
get wrong input nothing bad happens.
precopy_policy may indicate more or less iterations, this is not critical
