Subject: [PATCH v2 0/5] x86/xen: support booting PVH guest via standard boot path

Booting a Xen PVH guest requires a special boot entry as it is
mandatory to setup some Xen-specific interfaces rather early. When grub
or OVMF are used as boot loaders, however, those will fill the boot
parameters in zeropage and there is no longer a need to do something
PVH specific in the early boot path.

This patch series adds support for that scenario by identifying PVH
environment and doing the required init steps via Xen hooks instead of
using a dedicated boot entry.

The dedicated entry is still mandatory for support of Dom0 running in
PVH mode as in this case there is no grub or OVMF involved for filling
in the boot parameters.

Changes in V2:
- added new patches 1 and 2
