In /proc/cpuinfo of a domain0 you see the following:

 processor       : 0
 cpu             : PPC970MP, altivec supported
 clock           : 2300.000000MHz
 revision        : 1.1 (pvr 0044 0101)
 processor       : 1
 cpu             : PPC970MP, altivec supported
 clock           : 2300.000000MHz
 revision        : 1.1 (pvr 0044 0101)
 processor       : 2
 cpu             : PPC970MP, altivec supported
 clock           : 2300.000000MHz
 revision        : 1.1 (pvr 0044 0101)
 processor       : 3
 cpu             : PPC970MP, altivec supported
 clock           : 2300.000000MHz
 revision        : 1.1 (pvr 0044 0101)
 timebase        : 14318378
 platform        : Xen-Maple

The "platform" line "Xen-Maple" is currently used by some tools in
distros to identify the platform of the machine. The question I pose is
should this be changed from "Xen-Maple" since running on Xen does not
mean you are running on Maple. 

Something like "Xen" would probably be better. What do you guys think ?
