x86_64/entry/xen: Do not invoke espfix64 on Xen
commit 7209a75d2009dbf7745e2fd354abf25c3deb3ca3 upstream.
This moves the espfix64 logic into native_iret. To make this work,
it gets rid of the native patch for INTERRUPT_RETURN:
INTERRUPT_RETURN on native kernels is now 'jmp native_iret'.
This changes the 16-bit SS behavior on Xen from OOPSing to leaking
some bits of the Xen hypervisor's RSP (I think).
[ hpa: this is a nonzero cost on native, but probably not enough to
measure. Xen needs to fix this in their own code, probably doing
something equivalent to espfix64. ]
