[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen/evtchn: rearrange fields

Event channel arrays are allocated in blocks with EVTCHNS_PER_BUCKET
elements, which must be a power of 2.  When XSM is disabled, struct
evtchn is 32 bytes including padding; however, when XSM is enabled, the
structure becomes larger and EVTCHNS_PER_BUCKET is halved.  Rearranging
some of the fields in struct evtchn allows a 4-byte XSM field to fit
within the 32-byte structure.

This rearrangement turns the xen_consumer field of struct evtchn into a
bitfield and adjusts the xen_consumers array to fit the number of
addressable elements from this value.  Since there are currently only
two users of this array, only 3 bits (7 values) are reserved.  This
field is also used rarely enough that the slight overhead from applying
a bitmask should not cause problems.
