The EFI RID patches require pal.h to (directly or indirectly)
have access to GRANULE_SIZE which is defined in pgtable.h.
This effectively causes a header loop as pgtable.h includes
system.h and system.h includes pal.h. This patch breaks
that loop by not including pal.h in system.h if XEN is defined,
which is the only time the loop will occur.

There are two side effects of this:

1. regionreg.c makes use of some symbols declared in
   pal.h but does not include it directly. This is
   resolved by including it, which doesn't seem to
   cause any additional problems.

2. system.h makes use of ia64_pal_halt_light which is defined in pal.h.

   #define safe_halt()         ia64_pal_halt_light()

   This is probably the reason that pal.h is included in system.h.
   However this does not seem to manifest as any sort of build problem,
   presumably because either nothing in xen uses safe_halt,
   or because those that do include pal.h by some other means.

   In any case the change seems safe, though hackish.
