Attached are the args (*_args) and return structures (*_ret) for all the 
calls covered by the remote protocol, that is to say everything except 
Save, Restore and CoreDump (see previous email).

The only problem area are the upper limits imposed on the lengths of 
various strings and arrays.  The upper limits seem to be required for 
safely decoding messages from untrusted sources.  Some of them however 
would impose limits on such things as the number of CPUs supported, and 
perhaps those limits are too low (or too high)?  I don't really have any 
experience of the sort of huge machines that people might be running 
libvirt on.
