This is an update of last week's patch to clean up some of
xen-mkbuildtree-pre and apply to current xen-unstable.  This builds
successfully on x86, x86_64, ia64-vp and ia64-non-vp.

This patch converges the ia64-specific and general versions of
xen/drivers/Makefile and xen/drivers/core/Makefile.  Use Kconfig
settings instead to control whether specific pieces are built.  These
config settings might disappear when the ia64 p2m/vp conversion is
complete, but for the moment it's a clean way of handling the two
personalities of xen-ia64.

Lots of new config variables -- are they all really needed?
Can ia64 not use the Xenified /dev/mem (ia64 and x86 both seem to use direct_remap_pfn_range for various things now)?
Referring to xenia64_init.c from a generic Kconfig file is odd.
Can we pull the event-channel merge before taking this patch and avoid the kludge to pull in the ia64-specific evtchn code?
