===============

commit 24d5373dda7c00a438d26016bce140299fae675e upstream.

The function xen_guest_init is using __alloc_percpu with an alignment
which are not power of two.

However, the percpu allocator never supported alignments which are not power
of two and has always behaved incorectly in thise case.

Commit 3ca45a4 "percpu: ensure requested alignment is power of two"
introduced a check which trigger a warning [1] when booting linux-next
on Xen. But in reality this bug was always present.

This can be fixed by replacing the call to __alloc_percpu with
alloc_percpu. The latter will use an alignment which are a power of two.
