Moving an unmasked irq may result in irq handler being invoked on both
source and target CPUs.

With 2-level this can happen as follows:

On source CPU:
        evtchn_2l_handle_events() ->
            generic_handle_irq() ->
                handle_edge_irq() ->
                   eoi_pirq():
                       irq_move_irq(data);

                       /***** WE ARE HERE *****/

                       if (VALID_EVTCHN(evtchn))
                           clear_evtchn(evtchn);

If at this moment target processor is handling an unrelated event in
evtchn_2l_handle_events()'s loop it may pick up our event since target's
cpu_evtchn_mask claims that this event belongs to it *and* the event is
unmasked and still pending. At the same time, source CPU will continue
executing its own handle_edge_irq().

With FIFO interrupt the scenario is similar: irq_move_irq() may result
in a EVTCHNOP_unmask hypercall which, in turn, may make the event
pending on the target CPU.

We can avoid this situation by moving and clearing the event while
keeping event masked.

v2:
 * Use irq_move_masked_irq() instead of irq_move_irq()
 * Reorganize code flow
