OK. I will remove it.

OK. It will be added.

OK. The "extern" will be added.

At first it used the long function name for acrn_hv_callback_vector.
As it exceeds 80 columns, it is split into two lines.
I will check it and see whether it can be fit into one single line.
If it is ok, it will be in one single line.

The hypervisor requires that the APIC EOI should be acked. If the EOI
APIC is not acked, the APIC ISR bit for the HYPERVISOR_CALLBACK_VECTOR
will not be cleared and then it will block the interrupt whose vector is
lower than HYPERVISOR_CALLBACK_VECTOR.

Nothing will be done in this patch.
Later the driver part code will be added and it needs to add/remove the
corresponding driver handler. It is similar to vmbus_handler in
hyperv_vector_handler.
