From: Liam Merwick <Liam.Merwick@oracle.com>

The x86/HVM direct boot ABI permits Qemu to be able to boot directly
into the uncompressed Linux kernel binary with minimal firmware involvement.

	https://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/misc/pvh.html

This commit adds the header file that defines the start_info struct
that needs to be populated in order to use this ABI.

The canonical version of start_info.h is in the Xen codebase.
(like QEMU, the Linux kernel uses a copy as well).

+ * Start of day structure passed to PVH guests and to HVM guests in %ebx.
+ *
+ * NOTE: nothing will be loaded at physical address 0, so a 0 value in any
+ * of the address fields should be treated as not present.
+ *
+ *  0 +----------------+
+ *    | magic          | Contains the magic value XEN_HVM_START_MAGIC_VALUE
+ *    |                | ("xEn3" with the 0x80 bit of the "E" set).
+ *  4 +----------------+
+ *    | version        | Version of this structure. Current version is 1. New
+ *    |                | versions are guaranteed to be backwards-compatible.
+ *  8 +----------------+
+ *    | flags          | SIF_xxx flags.
+ * 12 +----------------+
+ *    | nr_modules     | Number of modules passed to the kernel.
+ * 16 +----------------+
+ *    | modlist_paddr  | Physical address of an array of modules
+ *    |                | (layout of the structure below).
+ * 24 +----------------+
+ *    | cmdline_paddr  | Physical address of the command line,
+ *    |                | a zero-terminated ASCII string.
+ * 32 +----------------+
+ *    | rsdp_paddr     | Physical address of the RSDP ACPI data structure.
+ * 40 +----------------+
+ *    | memmap_paddr   | Physical address of the (optional) memory map. Only
+ *    |                | present in version 1 and newer of the structure.
+ * 48 +----------------+
+ *    | memmap_entries | Number of entries in the memory map table. Only
+ *    |                | present in version 1 and newer of the structure.
+ *    |                | Zero if there is no memory map being provided.
+ * 52 +----------------+
+ *    | reserved       | Version 1 and newer only.
+ * 56 +----------------+
+ *
+ * The layout of each entry in the module structure is the following:
+ *
+ *  0 +----------------+
+ *    | paddr          | Physical address of the module.
+ *  8 +----------------+
+ *    | size           | Size of the module in bytes.
+ * 16 +----------------+
+ *    | cmdline_paddr  | Physical address of the command line,
+ *    |                | a zero-terminated ASCII string.
+ * 24 +----------------+
+ *    | reserved       |
+ * 32 +----------------+
+ *
+ * The layout of each entry in the memory map table is as follows:
+ *
+ *  0 +----------------+
+ *    | addr           | Base address
+ *  8 +----------------+
+ *    | size           | Size of mapping in bytes
+ * 16 +----------------+
+ *    | type           | Type of mapping as defined between the hypervisor
+ *    |                | and guest it's starting. E820_TYPE_xxx, for example.
+ * 20 +----------------|
+ *    | reserved       |
+ * 24 +----------------+
+ *
+ * The address and sizes are always a 64bit little endian unsigned integer.
+ *
+ * NB: Xen on x86 will always try to place all the data below the 4GiB
+ * boundary.
+ *
+ * Version numbers of the hvm_start_info structure have evolved like this:
+ *
+ * Version 0:
+ *
+ * Version 1:   Added the memmap_paddr/memmap_entries fields (plus 4 bytes of
+ *              padding) to the end of the hvm_start_info struct. These new
+ *              fields can be used to pass a memory map to the guest. The
+ *              memory map is optional and so guests that understand version 1
+ *              of the structure must check that memmap_entries is non-zero
+ *              before trying to read the memory map.
