System got hand and I got following traces related to energy aware scheduler. Is Xen affected with guest scheduling mechanism? I have SoC which has 4-Cortex A35 and 2-Cortex A72.

I have SoC with 4 Cortex A35 and 2 Cortex A72.
There is a nit which is overlooked often: XEN hypervisor does not pass an input device tree as is to Dom0. Especially CPU and memory nodes. They are created by XEN itself accordingly to dom0 configuration. Literally Dom0 receives device tree with VCPUs and domain RAM space description instead of PCPUs and machine RAM description. In your particular case, I guess, scheduler is looking for some specific properties in CPU nodes, but do not find them, because XEN creates basic CPU nodes from the scratch.
