how is this a property and not part of version?
Agree, changeset should be part of version

everyone here was agreed that since the management tools that need this
talk to the hypervisor ANYWAY, they might as well just ask this
information as well....
I think we had a good discussion but short of agreement. Some tools want to
read a file from /sys/hypervisor/ rather than call a c lib. (In other words,
not all tools will talk to the hypervisor.) It is appropriate to view the
hypervisor as a hardware device so it is appropriate to have some information
I appreciate the counter argument as well, but think this should be a
