[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen/arm: Init traps very early

The function init_traps setups the handler taken when Xen hits a BUG_ON/ASSERT.

If an error happen before init_traps is called, we loose the backtrace.

When a trap is taken from HYP mode, we need to:
    - get the processor ID, percpu has to be initialized and the
smp_processor_id correctly set.
    - initialize current, even tho it's not used for the time being. Move the
    debug sanity ealier.

Tested-by: Naresh Bhat <naresh.bhat@xxxxxxxxxx>

    Changes in v2:
        - Update a comment in the code to explain why we need to be set
        - Move the call after smp_processor_id as it's requires to be
        - Move set_current(...) ealier
