[PATCH V7 24/24] xen/ioreq: Make the IOREQ feature selectable on Arm

From: Oleksandr Tyshchenko <oleksandr_tyshchenko@xxxxxxxx>

The purpose of this patch is to add a possibility for user
to be able to select IOREQ support on Arm (which is disabled
by default) with retaining the current behaviour on x86
(is selected by HVM and it's prompt is not visible).

Also make the IOREQ be depended on CONFIG_EXPERT on Arm since
it is considered as Technological Preview feature and
update SUPPORT.md.
