Are you sure? On the Linus's repo I have:
bool "Xen platform mcelog"
depends on XEN_DOM0 && X86_64 && X86_MCE
Anyway, the MCE interface in the hypervisor is implemented in arch/x86
not in common code.

I'm 100% sure. MMU is handled by the hardware on ARM.
Thinking a bit more about this option. CONFIG_XEN_HAVE_PVMMU can't be
selected by the user. It's automatically added per platform (for
instance see arch/x86/xen/Kconfig).
So maybe it should not even appear in the one of the fragment configs?
