It would be useful if all shutdown/reboot operations were
symmetrical from domain 0's point of view. One approach
would be to redefine sched_op to handle other domains than
the current domain, but this seemed excessive.

I'd prefer an extra sched_op (maybe SCHEDOP_remote_shutdown with accompanying sched_remote_shutdown structure). This will need to be invokable by the emulator mini domain at some point in the future, so adding this as a dom0_op isn't really for the best.
