Why was it recommended to remove it?

"PVH == PV + HAP" is a ridiculous interface, and one which will make
it hard to import shadow in the future.  In my series I'm planning on
adding XEN_DOMCTL_CDF_pvh_guest, and using that instead.

The reason I didn't mention it before was that, not seeing any
toolstack patches, I thought it was just a hack to be able to create a
PVH guest without needing to modify xl/libxl to support it.
