Hi All,

As we know, for newer kernels of Xen guest, there are NO __xen_guest
section in vmlinz according to this link:
[[PATCH 4/5] XEN: Remove __xen_guest section] 

Normally, if a kernel(vmliuz) has __xen_guest, then we can read some
notes with tool readnotes to determine whether a kernel is PV or not.

Now, if the __xen_guest is no longer required, then we how to
determine a kernel of Xen guest is Para-Virtual or Full-Virtual?
