During HVM domain creation, I/O page tables are filled by coping p2m
entries from p2m table, which is a useless step for non-passthru domain.
This patch defers I/O page table construction until the moment of device
assignment. In case that pci devices are never assigned or hot plugged,
the unnecessary duplication will be avoid.
