[Xen-devel] [PATCH]Enhance Cx stability by adding softirq check before entry cstate

Without checking softirq_pending before entry Cx state, softirq such as
SCHEDULE_SOFTIRQ and TIMER_SOFTIRQ can't be handled timely. It may cause
severe failures such as disk I/O failure.

This patch addresses the issue above, meanwhile move timing points
closer to cstate entry/exit point to make C3 residency more accurate,
and enable irq a little earlier.
