[PATCH 1/8] arm/xen: Remove helpers which are PV specific

ARM guests are assimilated to HVM guest on ARM. The current
implementation is assuming a 1:1 mapping which is only true for DOM0 and
may not be at all in the future.

Furthermore, all the helpers but arbitrary_virt_to_machine are used in
x86 specific code (or only compiled for).

The helper arbitrary_virt_to_machine is only used in PV specific code.
Therefore we should never call the function.

Add a BUG() in this helper and drop all the others.
