In Fedora 11/12 we carry a virtinst patch which skips setting the keymap. This
was intended for qemu/kvm only, since newer versions support a VNC extension
which basically allows passing the host keymapping through to the guest.

Sounds like we need to be smarter about this and still generate a keymap for xen.
