I am fine with going down the x86_64 genapic route for Xen. The only
thing is that I know that IRQ overrides are not present in the x86_64
genapic. So that might have to be brought over for the ES7000.

I would like to start working on bringing the x86_64 code over. Will
this clash with anyone else?

I'm about halfway through bringing i386 platform code over. I'm working on smp bootup and cpumask_t right now, but genapic is next and should be quite simple. I'd rather take the more flexible i386 code in the first instance (which will immediately support es7000, for example) and then browse around for nicer bits and pieces from x86/64 (e.g., the IPI code is neat).
