RE: [Xen-users] pin cpu 0 to dom0.

Maybe things are different in Debian but the following does correctly pin the 
first 2 cores to Dom0 for me:

title CentOS (2.6.18-92.1.6.el5xen331)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /xen.gz-3.3.1 apic_verbosity=debug dom0_mem=4096M 
dom0_max_vcpus=2 acpi=on numa=on cpufreq=dom0-kernel
        module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
        module /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.6.el5xen.img

(dom0-min-mem 0)
(dom0-cpus 2)

xm vcpu-list:
Name                                ID  VCPU   CPU State   Time(s) CPU Affinity
Domain-0                             0     0     0   -b-  3035828.2 0
Domain-0                             0     1     1   r--  1384542.3 1

The min-mem setting disables dom0 memory ballooning, its definitely recommended 
in NUMA type configs.

I've (dom0-min-mem 196)
