xen/x86: Workaround 'x86/ioapic: Add register level checks to detect bogus io-apic entries'

The above mentioned patch checks the IOAPIC and if it contains
-1, then it unmaps said IOAPIC. But under Xen we get this:

The reason we are dying is b/c the call acpi_get_override_irq() is used,
which returns the polarity and trigger for the IRQs. That function calls
mp_find_ioapics to get the 'struct ioapic' structure - which along with the
mp_irq[x] is used to figure out the default values and the polarity/trigger
overrides. Since the mp_find_ioapics now returns -1 [b/c the IOAPIC is filled
with 0xffffffff], the acpi_get_override_irq() stops trying to lookup in the
mp_irq[x] the proper INT_SRV_OVR and we can't install the SCI interrupt.

The proper fix for this is going in v3.5 and adds an x86_io_apic_ops
struct so that platforms can override it. But for v3.4 lets carry this
work-around. This patch does that by providing a slightly different variant
of the fake IOAPIC entries.
