I guess the real question is how often we expect to be updating the
parameters of a single vcpu, vs just setting all of the parameters
(e.g., during domain creation).

If we expect a lot of tweaking from user-space tools, then we should
go with 3.  If we expect people to set parameters and then leave them
alone, we should go with 1.
