Something that I just remembered:

"NUMA-aware memory allocation for VMs. xl in Xen 4.1 will allocate equal amount 
of memory from every NUMA node for the VM. xm/xend allocates all the memory 
from the same NUMA node."

Is this something that should be looked at? Should the numa memory allocation 
be an option so it can be controlled per domain? 
The default libxl behaviour might cause unexpected performance issues on 
multi-socket systems?
