This patchset moves the creation of the start_info_t structure from
libxc to linux.  Removing the creation of start_info_t from libxc allows
us to revert our changes to the start_info_t struct  in
xen/include/public/xen.h.  This is achieved by adding a new node in the
flat devtree, /xen/start_info_t  under which all of the PPC relevant
fields become properties.

I've modified linux:xen_init_early() to work with either the previous
start-info field present in the devtree that Xen constructs for dom0, or
construct a start_info_t based on properties in the /xen/start_info_t if
present (domUs).

This is one of the steps to eventually removing then need for
start_info_t entirely
