[IA64] Support timer vector IPIs in PV code

Add support for IA64_TIMER_VECTOR as a paravirtualized IPI target

Necessary for the latest upstream Linux implementation of
check_sal_cache_flush() 3463a93def55c309f3c0d0a8aaf216be3be42d64

Upstream Linux recently added this change:


Now, for a platform bug check, we issue an IPI for the IA64_TIMER_VECTOR
and wait for it to show up in the IRR.  Since a PV kernel doesn't
support a timer IPI, this never happens.  The fix is simply to tie this
into xen_send_ipi() for this case.  This doesn't actually happen on
2.6.18, but since vendors are backporting changes from upstream, I think
it's good to have this in the reference tree
