The whole port is hypervisor-specific.  It should be called ps3hv or
sonyhv (in case the plan for more hardware that's crippled by this
hypervisor)  ps3 should be left for a bare metal port that people may
or may not do when they have time at their hands to get rid of the
HV that cripples the hardware.
