Which, BTW, make me thinking that you don't like the fact that, for each
candidate, we go through the list of domains to check what vcpus are
bound to such candidate.

That was requested during review of the automatic placement series,
reviewed itself, tested on an 8 nodes box with 50-60 domains and became
cs 4165d71479f9.

Anyway, if you want, I think I can change that too. :-)
