Re: [Xen-users] access to physical cpu in domU without passing through dom0

Actually, it won't go through dom0's scheduler; dom0's scheduler just 
schedules Linux tasks for dom0.  The domU will still have to go through Xen's 
domain scheduler.  However, if you assign a CPU exclusively to the domU and 
make sure nothing else runs on it then that's as close you can get to giving 
the domU total ownership of the CPU.  It should be pretty good.

Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
