[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 00/14] x86: remove paravirt_enabled

Now that Andy's ASM paravirt_enabled() use is merged all we need is to address
the rest of the C code uses. This completes that work by providing proper
semantics for platform legacy settings and quirks as suggested by Ingo, this in
turn can also be extended later for benefit of further processing of ACPI IA-PC Boot Architecture flags, which we currently don't take much
advantage of.  For instance the ACPI_FADT_NO_VGA can later be leveraged by bare
metal x86 *and* HVMLite, as HVMLite seems to plan to set this.

Also, hpa has noted both Intel MID and CE4100 can make use of disabling
pnpbios, we can do that separately after this, but it should now be a
trivial change, generic given this quirk stuff is all generic now.

This patches goes tested by 0-day, except for the last patch, for some reason
the branch that included that patch has had testing delayed for quite a
while now, but I can't think of anything there that should break anything.

I've also just run time tested this on bare metal only so far.
