I don't think we want (more) #ifdef CONFIG_X86 in grant-table.c and the
arch-specific bits will have to factored out into their own functions
with suitable stubs provided for ARM.

But, this patch went in late and it's clearly not ready. So I think it
should be reverted and we should aim to get it sorted out for 3.15.

Konrad/Stefano (if you agree) please revert
08ece5bb2312b4510b161a6ef6682f37f4eac8a1 and send a pull request.

Konrad, I also think you should look at adding an ARM build to your test
system (I thought you had this already).
