I'm afraid that's not the kind of question that's easy or useful to
answer.  Your best bet here is to look at the actual code and come
back with more specific questions.

See also http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/Asking_Developer_Questions.

If the second question is asking about gang scheduling, you need to
arrange for schedule() to be called on several cpus simultaneously (by
raising the SCHEDULE softirq), and then you need to arrange for the
specific scheduler code on each processor to choose the appropriate
