Support bootloader for xenner none

Description Daniel Berrange 2008-02-26 23:07:38 EST
Description of problem:
The QEMU driver is able to launch paravirt Xen guests using Xenner on KVM. THis
works if using a direct kernel/initrd pair, but usual practice is to boot using
the kernel/initrd from inside the guest. This requires use of the pygrub
bootloader, but this is not supported by the QEMU driver. This means
virt-install is unable to launch the guest post-install.
