Without shadow paging you can't do live migration of PV guests.  That
should go in the kconfig description. 

AFAICT nested virt depends on HAP rather than shadow.

I'm all in favour of making this selectable -- people who don't need
the feature can avoid 7k LOC that way. :)  If it's not going to be
'EXPERT' maybe we could have some console logging, either in the
none.c stubs or just at boot time, to make it more obvious why the
user's live migration/non-HAP guest doesn't work.
