Subject: [PATCH] x86/Xen: streamline (and fix) PV CPU enumeration

This started out with me noticing that "dom0_max_vcpus=<N>" with <N>
larger than the number of physical CPUs reported through ACPI tables
would not bring up the "excess" vCPU-s.

Noticing that xen_fill_possible_map() gets called way too early, whereas
xen_filter_cpu_maps() gets called too late (after per-CPU areas were
already set up), and further observing that each of the functions serves
only one of Dom0 or DomU, it looked like it was better to simplify this.
Use the .get_smp_config hook instead, uniformly for Dom0 and DomU.
xen_fill_possible_map() can be dropped altogether, while
xen_filter_cpu_maps() gets re-purposed but not otherwise changed.
