Dou Liyang - Sept. 13, 2017, 10:22 a.m.
XEN PV overrides smp_prepare_cpus(). xen_pv_smp_prepare_cpus()
initializes interrupts in the XEN PV specific way and does not invoke
native_smp_prepare_cpus(). As a consequence, x86_init.intr_mode_init() is
not invoked either.

The invocation of x86_init.intr_mode_init() will be moved from
native_smp_prepare_cpus() in a follow up patch to solve the dump-capture
kernel hangs, if there is a notsc option in its command line.

That move would cause the invocation of x86_init.intr_mode_init() for XEN
PV platforms. To prevent that, override the default x86_init.intr_mode_init()
callback with a noop().
