[Xen-devel] [PATCH] x86/PVH: replace bogus assertion with conditional

While PVH guests currently have to start in 64-bit mode, nothing keeps
them from entering compatibility mode via a suitable ring-0 code
selector and making a hypercall from there. Fail such attempts rather
than asserting they won't happen.
