It doesn't and regardless, you want to have this CPUID querying as
simple as possible. No special handling, no special prefixes as it
should be able to run on other hypervisors too.

If one can't execute a simple CPUID(0x4...) on a xen guest and get the
results back, then for early, we will have to do what we've done until
now and simply emulate the MSR accesses.

Later code can use then xen_cpuid() and all is fine. We should still get
rid of paravirt_enabled() though.
