Bug Description

- [ ] This doc is inaccurate in this way: ______
- [ ] This is a doc addition request.
- [x] I have a fix to the document that I can paste below including example: input and output.

The os_type property is also used for KVM in the OpenStack code and affects the behaviour for older Windows guests (by setting some specific flags in the KVM XML). I would therefore suggest to change the text to "libvirt API driver" from "XenAPI driver" for that row of the table.
