[QE-Review][V2V]It's better to erase '25.2.2. Converting a local Xen virtualized guest'

Description of problem:
In rhel6, there is no Xen kernel any more, so that it's impossible for us to convert a local Xen virtualized guest.
It's better to erase 25.2.2. Converting a local Xen virtualized guest
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is still possible, because the host may have been upgraded in place from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6.
Oh, maybe I let you misunderstand. My point is we cannot convert Xen guests via running 'virt-v2v -ic xen:///localhost -op pool --bridge brname vm-name', because there is no Xen kernel in RHEL6. (also xen:///localhost should be xen:/// or xen:///system )
Ah, yes. I'd forgotten that was in there.
I think the section needs to stay because we still want to support upgrading from RHEL 5 to RHEL 6. However, there is no need to document the case where the Xen hypervisor is running as this isn't possible in RHEL 6 as you say.
David, can you fix this bug for RHEL and RHEV?
I have removed the xen:///localhost example from the RHEL 6 guide only. Fixed in build:
xen:/// removed, section remains :)
