See vcpu_hotplug() in xen/xend/XendDomInfo.py

Yep, I'd much prefer this approach -- its annoying the tools don't work
on dom0. Volunteers?

They certainly *ought* to work. I can assure you that xend does connect to domain0's control interface. Otherwise you could not set up virtual blkif and netif connections to backend drivers running in domain0!

This should be a small bugfix: no major implementation effort required. :-)
