This was effectively lost while dropping PVHv1 code. Move the function

this then needs re-introducing the XENFEAT_mmu_pt_update_preserve_ad

Is this correct? I don't think the kernel needs to be paravirtualized
with PVH (at least not to the same extend as for PV).

What else do you suggest the message to say? Simply drop
"paravirtualized"? To some extent it is applicable imo, further
qualified by pv_info.name. And that's how it apparently was with

The string could be selected depending on CONFIG_XEN_PV.

Hmm, now I'm confused: Doesn't this setting control whether the kernel
can run in PV mode? If so, that functionality being present should have
no effect on the functionality of the kernel when running in PVH mode.
So what you suggest would end up in misleading information imo.

Hmm, yes, I mixed "paravirtualized" with "capable to run

So the string should depend on xen_pv_domain().
