The sysctl hypercall should be callable from HVM guests.

It may be useful to add all (or almost all) hypercalls to the HVM
hypercall table, rather than adding them one at a time when it is found
that a useful one is missing. While a few hypercalls don't make sense
when calling from HVM, any call that can interact with global xen state
or another domain could be useful to an HVM driver domain. Thoughts?
