Follow up part of this is to make 20_linux_xen.in be able to detect
whether Xen.gz can be loaded using multiboot2.

I was thinking to piggy-back on the patches which dropped
the check on CONFIG_XEN_DOM0 in the Linux kernel config file
as (I think so) it was inspecting the ELF of the Linux kernel
and determining if it has ".note.Xen" (see
http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/4.3-testing/misc/dump-core-format.txt or
and using some of that logic to inspect the Xen to find
the MB2 header?

But I am having a hard time finding them? Vladimir do you remember
where they might be?

Thank you!
