The above line is printed when the install checks if kernel-xen is 
present in the installonlypkgs option in /etc/yum.conf.

Without this, it will be impossible to have a multiple kernel-xen 
packages installed. Without this, each install will be an upgrade and 
previous versions would be automatically removed. This is very undesirable.

It was really added as a debug message and it has just stayed ever 
since. It can probably be removed from future versions.

This is also a debug message at the moment to check the selection of 
which grub.conf is being altered. Eventually, it can probably be removed.
