The hint can be found in this comment (xen/common/sched_credit.c:1140):

    /* Inform each CPU that its runq needs to be sorted */

Every 30ms, the "master" cpu will increment prv->runq_sort.

Every 10ms, each individual cpu will check prv->runq_sort, to see if it
has been incremented (by comparing it to runq_sort_last).  If it has
incermented, then the cpu will sort its runqueue by priority.
