That's still needed in order to build the shim with the right Kconfig
(which should be different from the Kconfig used for the bare metal
hypervisor build).

The main difference is that we can get rid of the shim related
makefile targets inside of xen/ because the same makefile targets can
be used to build a shim or a bare-metal version of Xen.

Thanks, Roger.
