clock enabling).
2. Update the patch following Tim's comments.

Change from v3:

1. Minor polish the patchset. Replace several specific 
is_hvm_pv_evtchn_domain() judgement.
2. Name changed...

Change from v2:
1. Change the name "hybrid" to "PV featured HVM", as well as flag and macro
2. Merge the hypercall page with HVM.
3. Clean up VIRQ delivery mechanism, fixing the lock issue.
4. Remove the reserved the region in E820(but another issue remains, I
 can't get location of grant table elegantly, as I described in Linux part

Please review, thanks!
