Or you could safely add "--enable-kernels" to your existing runes (won't
harm the current tree).

However the fact that we need to frotz with the test system at all
suggests to me that this change is not 4.3 material at this stage.

enable-xen-config stopped getting updated (I'd forgotten it even
existed) while we were still using Jeremy's pvops 2.6.32 branch I think,
it almost certainly hasn't kept up with upstream branches.
