Subject: [PATCH v2] xenpv: don't BUG when failing to setup NMI callback

some old Xen hypervisors (prior to 3.2) forbid DomUs to register
NMI callbacks. E.g. we have the following code in xen-3.1:

    if ( (d->domain_id != 0) || (v->vcpu_id != 0) )
        return -EINVAL;

Commit 6efa20e49b9cb1db1ab66870cc37323474a75a13 introduced kernel
crash in case PV guest fails to register NMI callback. All x86_64
PV guests will fail to boot on top of such hypervisors (RHEL5
example):

(XEN) traps.c:405:d7 Unhandled invalid opcode fault/trap [#6] in domain 7 on VCPU 0 [ec=0000]
(XEN) domain_crash_sync called from entry.S

...

However it is possible to proceed without NMI callback registered.

Changes in v2:
- skip nmi in cvt_gate_to_trap() for Xen < 3.2
- do not call xen_enable_nmi() when running under Xen < 3.2
- never BUG() in xen_enable_nmi()
