pv-on-hvm: fixes for unmodified drivers build and modern Linux

- The adjustments to README and are generic.
- The removal of explicit linux/config.h inclusion should also not
cause any issues.
- The introduction of irq_handler_t should eliminiate warnings on
2.6.19+ kernels (I didn't check they're there, but since the
request_irq prototype changed, I'm sure there's at least
one. However, as a result changes to the Linux tree are expected to
be required.
- The change setup_xen_features -> xen_setup_features follows the
naming in mainline 2.6.23 but would apparently also require changes
to the Linux tree.
- The changes SA_* -> IRQF_ and pci_module_init ->
pci_register_driver should also not cause issues.

1 To build:
3 1. ./mkbuildtree
4 NB. You can override paths to Xen sources and a (stub) XenLinux
5 build tree via the XEN and XL environment variable.
7 2. make -C /path/to/kernel/build M=$PWD modules
8 NB. This is your native kernel build tree (or a distro provided
9 stub), not the XenLinux sources referred to in step 1.
11 You get four modules, xen-platform-pci.ko, xenbus.ko, xen-vbd.ko, and
12 xen-vnif.ko. Load xen-platform-pci first, then xenbus, and then
13 whichever of xen-vbd and xen-vnif you happen to need.
