[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen/hvc: If we use xen_raw_printk let it also work on HVM guests.

The xen_raw_printk works great for debugging purposes and for
it print anything the Xen hypervisor has to be built with 'debug=y'.

As such there is no difference between a PV or an PVHVM guest
using the hypercall, so lets use it.

Lastly if the hyper-page is not setup yet (for example during
early HVM boot), then use the 0xe9 port if it has detected
that it is running under an Xen hypervisor.
