x86/xen: event channels delivery on HVM.
Set the callback to receive evtchns from Xen, using the callback vector delivery mechanism. The traditional way for receiving event channel notifications from Xen is via the interrupts from the platform PCI device. The callback vector is a newer alternative that allow us to receive notifications on any vcpu and doesn't need any PCI support: we allocate a vector exclusively to receive events, in the vector handler we don't need to interact with the vlapic, therefore we avoid a VMEXIT.
