Does this really need to be a CDF, rather than a domctl/hvm param?

The latter would allow moving to buildinfo.u.hvm, which would be nicer
from the libxl PoV, I think.

Is it useful to be able to configure this independently of the vmware_hw

If yes then I still think you would want to set the default based on
vmware-hw, wouldn't you?
