What does "virtual/" mean?

Paul D. DeRocco

I see lots of references to "virtual/kernel", as opposed to simply "kernel".
The bitbake docs show "virtual/whatever" and "virtual/package" in some of
its syntactic examples. But what does the "virtual/" prefix actually mean?
Google coughs up endless uses of the term, as though everyone knows what it
means, but no explanation of it.
