xen: don't reschedule in preemption off sections
For support of long running hypercalls xen_maybe_preempt_hcall() is calling cond_resched() in case a hypercall marked as preemptible has been interrupted. Normally this is no problem, as only hypercalls done via some ioctl()s are marked to be preemptible. In rare cases when during such a preemptible hypercall an interrupt occurs and any softirq action is started from irq_exit(), a further hypercall issued by the softirq handler will be regarded to be preemptible, too. This might lead to rescheduling in spite of the softirq handler potentially having set preempt_disable(), leading to splats like: BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at drivers/xen/preempt.c:37 in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 0, non_block: 0, pid: 20775, name: xl INFO: lockdep is turned off.

In kernel 5.8 this can't happen any more due to the entry code rework (more than 100 patches, so not a candidate for backporting). The issue was introduced in kernel 4.3, so this patch should go into all stable kernels in [4.3 ... 5.7].
