BTW I discover an issue: init_evtchn sets HVM_PARAM_CALLBACK_IRQ every
time it is called. That's unnecessary for APs. Perhaps it would be best
to break that function into two, one for setting HVM_PARAM_CALLBACK_IRQ,
the other for allocating and setting callback. BSP needs to call both
while APs only needs to call the latter.

This is out of scope for this series, but it is something to consider in
the future.
