I think you're using KVM, not Xen :-)

Dom0 and DomU are only terms we use in relation to Xen - when talking
about KVM, we usually use the terms "host" and "guest".

The release note could be changed to "Xen Kernel Support" rather than
"Unified Kernel Image" and be moved towards the end of the notes. A
casual user doesn't really even need to know about KVM vs. Xen.
