Hmmm... again the generic domgrp stuff seems like a huge amount of code with
few moving parts that would affect user experience of Xen. The original
schedgrps code by comparison is tiny. I don't mind taking big gobs of code
if there are genuine use cases, but I won't big pieces of 'architecture'
without good reason. I'm inclined to take Mike's patches roughly as he
previously posted them.
