[PATCH] xen: don't reschedule in preemption off sections

For support of long running hypercalls xen_maybe_preempt_hcall() is
calling cond_resched() in case a hypercall marked as preemptible has
been interrupted.

Normally this is no problem, as only hypercalls done via some ioctl()s
are marked to be preemptible. In rare cases when during such a
preemptible hypercall an interrupt occurs and any softirq action is
started from irq_exit(), a further hypercall issued by the softirq
handler will be regarded to be preemptible, too. This might lead to
rescheduling in spite of the softirq handler potentially having set
preempt_disable(), leading to splats like:

Fix that by testing preempt_count() before calling cond_resched().

In kernel 5.8 this can't happen any more due to the entry code rework.
