    xen/pvh: Fix segment selector ABI
    The written ABI states that %es will be set up, but libxc doesn't do so.  In
    practice, it breaks `rep movs` inside guests before they reload %es.
    The written ABI doesn't mention %ss, but libxc does set it up.  Having %ds
    different to %ss is obnoxous to work with, as different registers have
    different implicit segments.
    Modify the spec to state that %ss is set up as a flat read/write segment.
    This a) matches the Multiboot 1 spec, b) matches what is set up in practice,
    and c) is the more sane behaviour for guests to use.
