xen: Do not suspend IPI IRQs.

commit 4877c73 upstream.

In general the semantics of IPIs are that they are are expected to
continue functioning after dpm_suspend_noirq().

Specifically I have seen a deadlock between the callfunc IPI and the
stop machine used by xen's do_suspend() routine. If one CPU has already
called dpm_suspend_noirq() then there is a window where it can be sent
a callfunc IPI before all the other CPUs have entered stop_cpu().

If this happens then the first CPU ends up spinning in stop_cpu()
waiting for the other to rendezvous in state STOPMACHINE_PREPARE while
the other is spinning in csd_lock_wait().
