Configure already defines CONFIG_XEN as a target-specific
config define in config-target.mak for the specific targets
that Xen will work for (ie if you build --enable-xen for
x86_64-softmmu and ppc64-softmmu then CONFIG_XEN is set for
the former and not the latter). This patch makes it a
build-wide config setting by putting it in config-host.mak.

We should figure out which of those two is correct and do
just one of them, not do both at the same time.

Since CONFIG_HAX, CONFIG_KVM and other accelerator-type
config defines are also per-target, I suspect that the
correct fix for this bug is not in configure but elsewhere.
