Sorry about the top posting and html in mail (gmail has it on default
- i hope it's turned off now).

As per your remark about Credit1 - I am using the default settings of Xen,
as they were set by Ubuntu's package manager, so I do not know what kind
of scheduler is set.
According to http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Xen_Project_Schedulers
Credit1 is the default for 4.5, so it's probably that.
I'm not home right now, but I can check later.
