:-)  Well, we can wait and see if anybody complains; if the config
options are actually useful to people in real life, then that's worth
knowing.  Certainly, though, all the Red Hat and Fedora kernels just
compile with as much enabled as possible --- it's unnecessary complexity
to build separate dom0 and domU kernels.
