From: Julien Grall <jgrall@amazon.com>

After Commit 3499ba8198cad ("xen: Fix event channel callback via
INTX/GSI"), xenbus_probe() will be called too early on Arm. This will
recent to a guest hang during boot.

If there hang wasn't there, we would have ended up to call
xenbus_probe() twice (the second time is in xenbus_probe_initcall()).

We don't need to initialize xenbus_probe() early for Arm guest.
Therefore, the call in xen_guest_init() is now removed.

After this change, there is no more external caller for xenbus_probe().
So the function is turned to a static one. Interestingly there were two
prototypes for it.

Fixes: 3499ba8198cad ("xen: Fix event channel callback via INTX/GSI")
Reported-by: Ian Jackson <iwj@xenproject.org>

The offending commit unfortunately got backport to stable trees. So
this will need to be backported as well.
