[Xen-devel] [PATCH: IOEMU & XEN] Change ioreq layout and reduce its size

[Ian, please apply the attached ioemu patch and then send me an updated
QEMU_TAG. The change to the ioreq layout requires the ioemu and xen-unstable
patch check-ins to be closely synchronised.]

Reduce size of Xen-qemu shared ioreq structure to 32 bytes. This has two
 1. We can support up to 128 VCPUs with a single shared page
 2. If/when we want to go beyond 128 VCPUs, a whole number of ioreq_t
structures will pack into a single shared page, so a multi-page array will
have no ioreq_t straddling a page boundary

Also, while modifying qemu, replace a 32-entry vcpu-indexed array with a
dynamically-allocated array.
