Put 'em all on a diet. Don't try to do it overnight though because that never works and it makes them all hangry... Slowly try to have them lose weight over the course a few months and in no time they'll be slim, trim, and less cumbersome. Whether they'll be happy - who knows ;-) > > src/libxl/libxl_conf.c | 4 +- > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/basic-hvm.json | 2 +- > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/basic-pv.json | 2 +- > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/cpu-shares-hvm.json | 89 > ++++++++++++++++++++++ > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/cpu-shares-hvm.xml | 39 ++++++++++ > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/moredevs-hvm.json | 2 +- > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/multiple-ip.json | 2 +- > .../libxlxml2domconfigdata/variable-clock-hvm.json | 2 +- > tests/libxlxml2domconfigdata/vnuma-hvm.json | 2 +- > tests/libxlxml2domconfigtest.c | 1 + > 10 files changed, 138 insertions(+), 7 deletions(-) > Perhaps this is a "news" worthy type change along with the caveat about those more weighty domains that were allowed to feed at the trough without being limited. In any case, this all seems reasonable to me, but it also seems you have a self inflicted merge conflict.
