[Xen-devel] [PATCH v8a 6/6] xen/arm: Restrict saving of gic register for idle domain

From: Vijaya Kumar K <Vijaya.Kumar@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Check for idle domain is missing before saving gic context.
Xen stays in hypervisor mode when idle vcpu is running.
So no need to save and restore context when switched to/from
idle domain
