    [PATCH] paravirt: clarify VMI description
    Clarify the description of the CONFIG_VMI option: describe the reality
    that VMI is a VMWare-only interface for now. Once that changes and
    another hypervisor adopts the VMI ABI we can change the text.
    As can be seen from the Xen paravirtualization patches submitted to lkml
    the Xen project has chosen its own, non-VMI interface between Xen and
    the para-Linux - so remove Xen from the description.
