Uuh, I wasn't aware of this!

The idea was that asm/grant_table.h only contains abstractions needed in
grant_table.c. Why include it in a Xen-global header when only one
source needs its contents? Additionally when I started this patch I
tried to use inline functions instead of #defines in asm/grant-table.h
leading to compile errors when struct grant_table was dereferenced.

But with the missing prototypes problem I think it might really be
better to keep the #include in grant_table.h.
