Re: Crash when using cpupools

While doing some investigation with cpupools I encountered a crash when trying 
to isolate a guest to its own physical cpu.

I am using current staging status.

I did the following (on FVP with 8 cores):
- start dom0 with dom0_max_vcpus=1
- remove core 1 from dom0 cpupool: xl cpupool-cpu-remove Pool-0 1
- create a new pool: xl cpupool-create name=\"NetPool\”
- add core 1 to the pool: xl cpupool-cpu-add NetPool 1
- create a guest in NetPool using the following in the guest config: 

I end with a crash with the following call trace during guest creation:

After some debugging I found out that unit->vcpu_list is NULL after unit->vcpu_list = 
d->vcpu[unit->unit_id]; with unit_id 0 in common/sched/core.c:688
This makes the call to is_idle_unit(unit) in csched2_alloc_udata trigger the 

So there is no vcpu 0 in that domain? How is this possible?
