x86: adjust/fix LDT handling for Xen
Based on patch from Jan Beulich <jbeulich@novell.com>. Don't rely on kmalloc(PAGE_SIZE) returning PAGE_SIZE aligned memory (Xen requires GDT *and* LDT to be page-aligned). Using the page allocator interface also removes the (albeit small) slab allocator overhead. The same change being done for 64-bits for consistency. Further, the Xen hypercall interface expects the LDT address to be virtual, not machine.
