When an idle vcpu is being created its cpu is in no cpupool yet
(a free cpu). Those cpus are always subject to cpu scheduling
(granularity 1). Only when cpus are put into a cpupool the
granularity is adjusted accordingly and the idle-vcpus are
possibly grouped in units (see patch 45).

Regarding the state entry time: different vcpus of a unit can be
in different states (blocked/running, etc.), so their state entry
times will generally differ. A unit's state entry time will
reflect its scheduling events (being scheduled/descheduled).

Right. The states of a vcpu and the unit it is belonging to are
coupled, but not identical.

No, it is not true any longer. All but one vcpus of a unit can be
blocked resulting in the related idle vcpus to be running. This means
that even with one unit being replaced by another one the vcpu can be
the same.

Hmm, yes.
