commit 21ef55f4ab2b6d63eb0ed86abbc959d31377853b

xen/swiotlb: With more than 4GB on 64-bit, disable the native SWIOTLB.

If a PV guest is booted the native SWIOTLB should not be
turned on. It does not help us (we don't have any PCI devices)
and it eats 64MB of good memory. In the case of PV guests
with PCI devices we need the Xen-SWIOTLB one.
