It's not actually that different. It still has the same header file, just uses
the macros to generate a jump table rather than an array of function pointers.
The main advantage being that we can avoid .hyp.text dependency on
physvirt_offset. Feel free to have a look, branch 'topic/el2-obj-wip' at:
	https://android-kvm.googlesource.com/linux

Perhaps this is not worth the trouble. We do hope to get to a point where the
ABI between .text and .hyp.text is formalized, but in my mind that ABI is
unlikely to be using this same hypcall path.

On the other hand, I've played with preserving the function-pointer interface
in the last couple of days and later in this series we do end up having to
declare all of the hcall entry points (which now have two ELF symbols), so we
end up with a similar table regardless, just with no IDs assigned.
