I also did an additional check and merged this tree with linux-next/master. This introduced a new problem.
The fix is simple, see patch. But I am not sure how to add that to next (via my tree), since this change is only in next.

Subject: [PATCH] x86/xen/p2m: Replace ACCESS_ONCE with READ_ONCE

ACCESS_ONCE does not work reliably on non-scalar types. For
example gcc 4.6 and 4.7 might remove the volatile tag for such
accesses during the SRA (scalar replacement of aggregates) step
(https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58145)

Change the p2m code to replace ACCESS_ONCE with READ_ONCE.
