bitkeeper revision 1.1159.278.1 (424c69fdsFkm7FZ7SYMwK1Y6v6p1Og)

Make default CPU placement of domains a bit smarter on systems with
hyperthreading: only dom0 gets to use hyperthreading by default, we
effectively ignore it on all other CPUs by allocating domains to
the same hyperthread. If you don't like this, use 'xm pincpu' to
change it. [note: we probably need to make pincpu more expressive,
providing a list of CPUs that the domain can be scheduled on.]
