    Not just that, but we can have a kernel image supporting both
    the "raw" hardware _and_ stuff with a hypervisor underneath.

    All CONFIG_<whatever> should always be used as a positive,
    never a negative. My bad :-)

    So it really should be

    depends on PPC_CELL_NATIVE

    or similar. Having PPC_CELL mean "native" / "raw" is not the
    way to go, there will be many many hypervisors in the future,
    it would be nice to have PPC_CELL mean just that, "support for
    the Cell architecture" in general, kernels running on various
    hypervisors will see the hardware virtualised to varying degrees.
