we've started using Xen 4.0.1 yesterday and know we have a problem with
vcpu_avail within our domu configs, which work as intended with Xen 3.2.

In our config we have the following 2 lines:

vcpus = 8
vcpu_avail = 1

After starting the domu, it has got 8 cpus instead of 1. Does anyone
know if this option has changed with Xen4 or what may cause vcpu_avail
to fail?

I did some testing on this topic and found out that in /var/log/xen/xend.log it always says "'vcpu_avail': '255'". It makes no difference if I set vcpu_avail to 1, 8, 255 or anything else or remove it completely from the config. Any ideas?
