The + 8 / 8 thing still jumps out at me every time I look at it. Perhaps
the intention would be clearer if written as:
int nr_cpus = physinfo.max_cpu_id + 1;
cpumap_size = (nr+cpus + 7) / 8;
I modified it to make it more clear.
If xc_physinfo fails (which seems like a reasonably fatal type of error)
then this function returns 0 but the caller does not seem to check for
Okay, test added.

local_size has already been rounded up in get_cpumap_size. Do we really
need to do it again?
I've made it more clear that this is rounding to uint64.
+ size = sizeof(xc_cpupoolinfo_t) + cpumap_size * 8 + local_size;
Why do we need both "cpumap_size * 8" and local_size additional bytes
here? Both contain the number of bytes necessary to contain a cpumap
bitmask and in fact I suspect they are both equal at this point (see
point about rounding above).
The hypervisor returns a cpumask based on bytes, the tools use uint64-based
cpumasks. In practice this is equivalent as long as multiple of 8 bytes are
written by the hypervisor and the system is running little endian.
I prefer a clean interface mapping here.
