Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 0/3] arch/x86: Add the support of ACRN guest under arch/x86

ACRN is a flexible, lightweight reference hypervisor, built with real-time
and safety-criticality in mind, optimized to streamline embedded development
through an open source platform. It is built for embedded IOT with small
footprint and real-time features. More details can be found
in https://projectacrn.org/

This is the patch set that allows the Linux to work on ACRN hypervisor and it can
work with the following patch set to manage the Linux guest on acrn-hypervisor. It
includes the detection of acrn_hypervisor, upcall notification vector from
hypervisor, hypercall. The hypervisor detection is similar to Xen/VMWARE/Hyperv.
ACRN also uses the upcall notification mechanism similar to that in Xen/Microsoft
HyperV when it needs to send the notification to Linux OS. The hypercall provides
the mechanism that can be used to query/configure the acrn-hypervisor by Linux guest.

Following this patch set, we will send acrn driver part, which provides the interface
that can be used to manage the virtualized CPU/memory/device/interrupt for other guest
OS after the acrn hypervisor is detected.


v1->v2: Change the CONFIG_ACRN to CONFIG_ACRN_GUEST, which makes it easy to
understand.
        Remove the export of x86_hyper_acrn.
        Remove the unused API definition of acrn_setup_intr_handler and
acrn_remove_intr_handler.
        Adjust the order of header file
        Add the declaration of acrn_hv_vector_handler and tracing
definition of acrn_hv_callback_vector.
	Refine the comments for the function of acrn_hypercall0/1/2
