I believe there is a better way of doing this that I had enumerated
in the thread (see "xen: remove unused Kconfig parameter"). That was to
remove the CONFIG_XEN_PRIVILIGED and XEN_CONFIG_DOM0 and instead have an
CONFIG_XEN_HARDWARE_DOMAIN and CONFIG_XEN_CONTROL_DOMAIN which reflect the
reality a lot better.

P.S.
That idea had been percolating a bit - and it started way back with Andrew Jones
proposing an Kconfig patch a year ago - see:
http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2012-01/msg00500.html for some
backstory.
