Subject: [PATCH] XEN / ACPI: Make XEN ACPI depend on X86

When ACPI is enabled on ARM64, XEN ACPI will also compiled
into the kernel, but XEN ACPI is x86 dependent, so introduce
CONFIG_XEN_ACPI to make it depend on x86 before XEN ACPI is
functional on ARM64.

AFAIK, There is already a kernel patch exists to fix this issue. I
think Julien or Parth is a right person to ask. Hence I am CCed Julien
Grall too.

The ACPI support for Xen is not ready. So I think avoiding to compile drivers/xen/acpi.c on ARM64/ARM seems the better solution for now.

Although, rather than introducing a new CONFIG option, I would use the same trick we use within the Makefile to avoid hotplug.c on ARM/ARM64.

ifeq ($(filter y, $(CONFIG_ARM) $(CONFIG_ARM64)), )
dom0-$(CONFIG_ACPI) += acpi.o $(xen-pad-y)
