I think you're the first one to report this. The warning is harmless but
the following patch should fix things up. Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] xen: Use kcalloc() in xen_init_IRQ()

The init_IRQ() function is now called with slab allocator initialized.
Therefore, we must not use the bootmem allocator in xen_init_IRQ().
Fixes the following boot-time warning:
