Subject[PATCH v12 07/21] x86/xen: Add stack frame dependency to hypercall inline asm calls
If a hypercall is inlined at the beginning of a function, gcc can insert
the call instruction before setting up a stack frame, which breaks frame
pointer convention if CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER is enabled and can result in
a bad stack trace.

Force a stack frame to be created if CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER is enabled by
listing the stack pointer as an output operand for the hypercall inline
asm statements.
