[IA64] set itv handoff as masked and enable reading irr[0-3]

Set initial vcpu itv handoff state to mask the timer vector.
This seems to match hardware and makes logical sense from a
spurious interrupt perspective. Enable vcpu_get_irr[0-3]
functions as they seem to work and have the proper backing.
This enables the check_sal_cache_flush() in arch/ia64/kernel.sal.c
to work unmodified, allowing us to remove the Xen changes from
the file (and thus the file from the sparse tree).

1 This directory contains the implementation of vnets:
2 virtual private networks for virtual machines.
4 See 00INSTALL for build instructions, doc/ for more information
5 and examples/ for example configurations.
7 The vnet implementation can be run using a kernel module
8 or a user-space daemon. The kernel module is in vnet-module/ and the
9 user-space daemon (varpd) is in vnetd/. The user-space daemon
10 needs the tun/tap kernel module. Vnets use multicast to find
11 virtual interfaces and support broadcast. Either implementation can
12 tunnel multicast packets to other implementations if wide-area
13 multicast routing is not available.
