1.1     ! bouyer      1: Xen is a hypervisor which supports running multiple guest operating
        !             2: systems on a single machine. Guest OSes (also called "domains")
        !             3: can be either paravirtualised (i.e. make hypercalls in order to
        !             4: access hardware), run in HVM (Hardware Virtualisation Mode) where
        !             5: they will be presented with virtual devices, or a combination where
        !             6: they use hypercalls to access hardware but manage memory themselves.
        !             7: At boot, the xen kernel is loaded along with the guest kernel for
        !             8: the first domain (called domain0). domain0 has privileges to access
        !             9: the physical hardware (PCI and ISA devices), administrate other
        !            10: domains and provide virtual devices (disks and network) to other
        !            11: domains.
        !            12:
        !            13: This package contains the 4.15 Xen kernel itself.  PCI passthrough is
        !            14: not supported.  PAE is mandatory; on i386 one must use XEN3PAE_DOM[0U].
