This is much better than the previous version, but there is nothing
HVM-specific about having an arbitrary signal to the vm_event subsystem.

It might be better to chose a different hypercall to hang a subop off. 
On the other hand, we already have things like HVMOP_xentrace, and there
is nothing actually preventing PV domains issuing a
HVMOP_request_vm_event.  Perhaps it doesn't matter too much.
