Move a few constants defined by libxl_arm.c to

Also, this way they can be reused by hypervisor code.

All variables moved to arch-arm.h should be prefixed with GUEST_* to avoid
clash with the rest of Xen.

I'll do.

Those defines have nothing to do with the guest itself. They are currently
define in Xen without the DT_ prefix.

Sounds like we want to get rid of the DT_IRQ_TYPE_* definitions
completely, move the IRQ_TYPE_* definitions from device_tree.h to here,
and start using them in tools/libxl/libxl_arm.c (which involves a
renaming s/DT_IRQ_TYPE/IRQ_TYPE/g).

Is that what you had in mind?

Even if DT is Arm only today, the DT code is in common code and therefore header device_tree.h should contain every thing necessary to use a DT.

If we still want to share constant with libxl then I would prefer to introduce a new header (similar to acpi/acconfig.h) that provide all the common values.

Note that the hypervisor one don't have the DT_ prefix because they are use to describe IRQ for both DT and ACPI in Xen. It is not that nice, we might want to introduce aliases in that case. So we keep DT_* in libxl.
