From: Fu Wei <fu.wei@linaro.org>

This patch adds a has_xsm_magic helper function for detecting XSM
from the second unknown module.

If Xen can't get the kind of module from compatible, we guess the kind of
these unknowns respectively:
    (1) The first unknown must be kernel.
    (2) Detect the XSM Magic from the 2nd unknown:
        a. If it's XSM, set the kind as XSM, and that also means we
	won't load ramdisk;
	b. if it's not XSM, set the kind as ramdisk.
	So if user want to load ramdisk, it must be the 2nd unknown.
We also detect the XSM Magic for the following unknowns, then set its kind
according to the return value of has_xsm_magic.

By this way, arm64 behavior can be compatible to x86 and can simplify
multi-arch bootloader such as GRUB.

Changelog:
v5: Wrap "#include <asm/setup.h>" up by #ifdef CONFIG_HAS_DEVICE_TREE
    Improve has_xsm_magic code.

v4: http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2016-04/msg00553.html
    Fix some code style and comments problems.
    Only check the Magic number.
    Re-order the code in process_multiboot_node to get the base address
    first, then the XSM Magic checking function only need to check if the
    Magic number is valid.
    Factor the XSM Magic checking code into an helper and re-use it
    in xsm_dt_policy_init.

v3: http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2016-03/msg03564.html
    Using memcmp instead of strncmp.
    Using "return 0;" instead of panic();
    Improve some comments.

v2: http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2016-03/msg03543.html
    Using XEN_MAGIC macro instead of 0xf97cff8c :
    uint32_t selinux_magic = 0xf97cff8c; --> uint32_t xen_magic = XEN_MAGIC;
    Comment out the code(return 0 directly), if CONFIG_FLASK is not set.

v1: http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2016-03/msg02430.html
    The first upstream patch to xen-devel mailing lists.

The documentation in docs/misc/arm/device-tree/booting.txt needs to be 
update.

Otherwise, the rest of the patch looks good to me.

Is this targeting 4.7? Today is the last day for committing stuff. The
doc can come in later.

Julien and Daniel's acks are needed here.

(I notice this patch is first posted on March 18 hence eligible for
4.7).
