We should unify if the vcpu pinning is only meant for starting the
domain or if it's mandatory for the whole time domain is running. It is
possible now to have auto placement and pin the vcpus while the domain
is running.

If we want to disable it for emulator threads, we should also do it for
VCPU threads.

IMO no need to disable for vCPU threads, as "auto" placement only
cares about the affinity of domain process, it might imply we should
change that, but now it is that.

I'm fine to keep this patch in the list though, it's not that hurry to
get it in.

However, then decision whether we should do it at all
should not be made by me. Anyone else has an opinion on that?
