Ah that's interesting - its certainly something that would be misleading
to operators.  It seems it is reporting the libvirt driver name, rather
than the actual hypervisor type. It'd be nice to fix it, but I'n not sure
if we can do so without creating upgrade incompatibility if people have
scheduler filters depending on that value :-(
