Subject: [PATCH v5]  Fix interrupt latency of HVM PCI passthroughdevices.

Hey Jan, and other maintainers which scripts/get_maintainer.pl spit out,

Changelog since v4 
 - Ditch the domain centric mechansim.
 - Fix issues raised by Jan.

The big change is on ditching of having a domain centric view and
focus on having it all revolve around 'struct hvm_pirq_dpci'
structure. That all works - except that we must be very careful
with the 'dom' field. I haven't been able to trigger an assert but
there is one edge case (see the second patch) which required some
an bounded loop in case of a race. I would welcome feedback of
what the prefer way is of resolving it.

If this mechanism seems a bit cumbersome I can switch back to
the v4 design - which was based on the struct domain having the
state and list.

Please review!
