xen: pvhvm: rename xen_emul_unplug=ignore to =unnnecessary
It is not immediately clear what this option causes to become ignored. The actual meaning is that it is not necessary to unplug the emulated devices to safely use the PV ones, even if the platform does not support the unplug protocol. (pressumably the user will only add this option if they have ensured that their domain configuration is safe). I think xen_emul_unplug=unnecessary better captures this.
