There are only six fields in vcpuinfo, also cpumap_t is a u64, so use
[1]"K" for parsing cpumap.

I won't change to 'K' because that is not supported by Python 2.2, and also because it leaves the cpumap argument to domain_pincpu() as an 'i'.

Furthermore, I disagree with exporting cpu bitmaps into Python. I think it would be much nicer to pass lists of cpus (i.e., lists of ints) to and fro at that interface, and have xc.c do the conversion between lists and bitmaps. I would gladly take a patch that implements this.
