The Gentoo init scripts do some stuff that fails under a domU
(hwclock, ntp..). There's a function that tries to detect a if the
kernel is a xenU so as to not to do the things that fail, but it's
currently broken (http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107976). It
would be nice to have a simple way to fix it.
