In order to prepare core- and socket-scheduling use a new struct
sched_unit instead of struct vcpu for interfaces of the different
schedulers.

Rename the per-scheduler functions insert_vcpu and remove_vcpu to
insert_unit and remove_unit to reflect the change of the parameter.
In the schedulers rename local functions switched to sched_unit, too.

For now this new struct will contain a vcpu pointer only and is
allocated on the stack. This will be changed later.

This looks good to me.

One thing that came to mind, is that the various function parameters
and local variables called 'unit', could be called 'su'.

It's a contraction of 'sched_unit', like, e.g., 'v' or 'vc' were
contractions of 'vcpu', it's still quite descriptive, it's short, which
is always good, IMO, and might mean less line wrap reformatting
(considering that it's replacing 'v' or 'vc').

Of course, this will likely mean changing all the other ~60 patches, so
I'll understand if you say that it would be too much.

Also...

Is my understanding correct that this field is going to be renamed
vcpu_list, right from this patch?

I prefer "unit", as it is more readable and the effort to do the change
would be quite large (replacing "item" by "unit" was doable via sed,
while this change would require more manual intervention).

I guess what'd be more readable it's to some big extent a matter of
personal taste. However, I trust you about the amount of work needed
for doing such a rework, so I won't insist on it.
