I've now done this, it should come through as changesets 11244-11246.

The accessor functions which abstract the elf notes vs. __xen_guest
stuff should now be OK with both being absent on !x86 so I think the
patches I sent earlier are still correct, but please confirm.

Does it make sense to add a token set of ELF notes to your kernels? I
think XEN_VERSION, GUEST_OS and GUEST_VERSION would do the job...

Many thanks,
