Subject[PATCH v6 4/6] xen: add xen_pin_vcpu() to support calling functions on a dedicated pcpu
Date
Some hardware models (e.g. Dell Studio 1555 laptops) require calls to
the firmware to be issued on cpu 0 only. As Dom0 might have to use
these calls, add xen_pin_vcpu() to achieve this functionality.

In case either the domain doesn't have the privilege to make the
related hypercall or the hypervisor isn't supporting it, issue a
warning once and disable further pinning attempts.
