Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 01/10] docs: don't refer to deprecated 'linux' ostype in example

Use preferred name: 'xen'.

I'd be fine with this change if the actual code used the preferred name too :-). E.g. config containing

  <type arch='x86_64' machine='xenpv'>xen</type>

will be shown as

  <type arch='x86_64' machine='xenpv'>linux</type>

after virsh define; virsh dumpxml. Also, virsh domxml-from-native will produce the linux variant.

Regards,
Jim
