I won't worry about a syntax check at this point, then (but it does mean
that I may end up doing another patch like this down the road).  The
main intent was the change in xen_driver.c, since translators deserve
consistent strings in the .pot; I don't care as much about comments, and
the static function name isn't part of the public API, but they were
easy to change as long as I was doing the work.

For the record, my wife is British, and she already says I can't spell;
but it means that I'm a little more tuned in to the differences between
the two dialects than most.
