The patch is definitely too big.

Put that elsewhere? It doesn't need to be here.

Comments describing what all the files do?

Why ACC?

And why doesn't Xen mask those by itself?

And you got apic functions later which would be never called?
Why are the hooks needed then?

If you use get_cpu/put_cpu it will be optimized away on PREEMPT && !SMP
(more occurrences)

Don't you need a rmb() here then? The CPU could speculate reads

First with the new per cpu the preempt disable shouldn't be needed
anymore because the thing is atomic. In the worst case you do
the change on the previous CPU, but that can happen anyways after
preempt_enable

And then when you have enabled who transfers the irq off state to the
new CPU?

Who halts then?

Why 16?

should be >= ?

And who does iopl then?

Don't you lose bits >4GB here due to the casts before shift?

Hopefully Xen 4.0 can handle this then.

| 0 ? Probably should be something symbolic

Why do we have pmd_val hooks then?

and make_pmd hooks?

... will review the rest later.

Can you please split it up a bit?
