This must be new change. Historically SUSE never provided pre-built
kernel/initrds for Xen installation. So, deleteing this code is not
the correct approach. It should first probe for the pre-built image
paths, and fallback to the existing code if those are missing.

On a i386 host, it obviously only needs to look for the i386 directory,
but on a x86_64 host, it would need to look for both x86_64 and then
try the i386 dir if that fails.
