I was about to submit a pull request with this patch, but unfortunately
it breaks non-xen compilations:

hw/i386/pc_piix.o: In function `pc_init1':
/local/scratch/sstabellini/qemu/hw/i386/pc_piix.c:94: undefined reference to `xen_hvm_init'

you need to add the function to xen-stub.c:


I'll include this change in the pull request

Ok. Thanks for the fix-up.
