Actually I don't think that this could cause any forking (at least in
upstream Xen) even if the patches are not accepted. But it would be nice
to have a smaller and lighter QEMU for ARM with just the PV backend.
Otherwise we'll have to run a big fat qemu-system-i386 even for ARM
guests, a bit overkill given that we only need the backends.
