Pinning of vCPUs, either of dom0 or domUs, is completely orthogonal to
what kind of guest is used (for domUs, of course).

Whether pinning or not is helpful, is highly dependent on the actual
workload, but in general, using dom_vcpus_pin is discouraged (I find
the parameter itself awkward and confusing).

In fact, in case what you want is to reserve some vCPUs to dom0 and
dom0 only, using dom0_vcpus_pin _DOES_NOT_ do that.
