Wasn't there some oddity in the Xen ACPI PM support due to the
disconnect between VCPU and PCPU? I thought it resulted in some CPU id
or other being reported back as -1, in much this manner.
There's some tweaking of this stuff in e.g.
xen_acpi_processor_get_power_info(). But equally
xen_acpi_processor_get_info() has a bunch of cases for the != -1 case.
Does the dom0_vcpus_pin hypervisor option workaround this sort of thing?
This changeset refers to the -1 too:

xen/acpi: Add cpu hotplug support
Add physical CPU hotplug support to origin/xen/next-2.6.32 branch.
Please notice that, even with this change, the acpi_processor->id is
still always -1. This is because several workaround in PM side depends
on acpi_processor->id == -1. As the CPU hotplug logic does not depends
on acpi_processor->id, I'd still keep it no changes.
But we need change the acpi_processor->id in the future.
