With this patch xen crashes go away because they paravirt

The other place where we use the amd_safe variants is an obscure K8,
revC and earlier fix for _some_ BIOSen and this hasn't bitten us yet
so I'm assuming people haven't run xen on such boxes yet. Does it need
fixing? Probably, if we really really have to.

Now, someone probably needs to paravirt the *safe_regs variants in case
something else decides to use them. I don't know what to do here, do I
want more paravirt code in there? No. I guess if this is done carefully
and cleanly, then it should be ok but it can't be done like that - it
needs to adhere to the current pv_cpu_ops thing which is already there.
