Kbuild test robot reports the following problem on ARM:

>> drivers/xen/events/events_base.c:1664:6: warning: no previous prototype
  for 'xen_setup_callback_vector' [-Wmissing-prototypes]
1664 | void xen_setup_callback_vector(void) {}
|      ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The problem is that xen_setup_callback_vector is a x86 only thing, its
definition is present in arch/x86/xen/xen-ops.h but not on ARM. In
events_base.c we have a stub for !CONFIG_XEN_PVHVM but it is not
declared as 'static'.

On x86 the situation is hardly better: drivers/xen/events/events_base.c
doesn't include 'xen-ops.h' from arch/x86/xen/, it includes its namesake
from include/xen/ so we also get the 'no previous prototype' warning.

Currently, xen_setup_callback_vector() has two call sites: one in
drivers/xen/events_base.c and another in arch/x86/xen/suspend_hvm.c. The
former is placed under #ifdef CONFIG_X86 and the later is only compiled

Resolve the issue by moving xen_setup_callback_vector() declaration to
arch neutral 'include/xen/hvm.h' as the implementation lives in arch
neutral drivers/xen/events/events_base.c.

- The patch needs to be applied on top of 'x86/xen: Split HVM vector callback
 setup and interrupt gate allocation' ('tip/entry' branch currently). This
 patch doesn't introduce the issue (and that's why I don't add 'Fixes:' tag)
 but it renames xen_callback_vector() -> xen_setup_callback_vector().
