I think it would make sense to separate out this part of the patch
(which also touches tools/python).  Can the consequence in libxl of
this change to the xc_ functions be decoupled from the extra
functionality of the new libxl and xl features ?

I think ideally this would be three patches:
  libxc: cpupools: support arbitrary number of physical cpus
  libxl: support more cpupool operations
  xl: support cpupools
although splitting the 2nd and 3rd apart is trivial so I could do it
myself :-).
