I seem to recall that with the old xen-sources kernel that this wasn't a 
problem as I had an init script which set the cpu frequency governors as 
I wanted them.  However once mainline got dom0 pvops I jumped to that 
and made do without that particular feature.  Once xen-acpi-processor 
was added then I noticed this behaviour.  It is possible that during 
that time I added the dom0_max_vcpus parameter and so I'm not comparing 
exactly the same configuration.  I'll poke around to see if I can find 
an old xen kernel which I can test with.
