One of the downsides of pv-ops: You can't hide functionality
known to not work under Xen already at kernel configuration
time, and hence need to find ways to suppress their use at
run time if enabled for the purpose of using it when run on
bare hardware.

Btw., if you're after the underlying code in the hypervisor,
look for the uses of "opt_allow_superpage".
