I always think of '<os>' as providing data about the way your start the
virtual machine. eg, the kernel / initrd for paravirt, the BIOS boot device
for fullvirt, and thus..... the 'init' process for containers.

Oh, pretend you didn't see the '<bootloader>' tag outside the <os> block.
A historical mistake :-(
