Add xen-devel back on Cc list.

And please don't top-post.

As Ian and Zoli suggested, there might be already tools that can achieve
your goal. Your idea to improve latency and jitter  is certainly
valuable, but I would suggest you do through research on existing tools.
That would help you understand the strength and weakness of existing
tools, as well as the strength and weakness of your own idea.

If you have any problem with regard to netback driver, feel free to post
on xen-devel. However I don't have much knowledge on Linux scheduler so
I cannot comment on the round robin and QoS part.  :-)
