I've gotten this patch queued up (if you think of a better name or if you think
the description could use some re-wording - please do provide some ideas):

commit 4beb84ffeacbf8df21b41ca8c05d099e19c579a3

    With the frontend having Xen but the backend not, it just looks odd:
      <*>   Xen virtual block device support
      <*>   Block-device backend driver
    Fix it to have the 'Xen' in front of it.
