x86: limit checks in hypercall_xlat_continuation() to actual arguments

HVM/PVH guests can otherwise trigger the final BUG_ON() in that
function by entering 64-bit mode, setting the high halves of affected
registers to non-zero values, leaving 64-bit mode, and issuing a
hypercall that might get preempted and hence become subject to
continuation argument translation (HYPERVISOR_memory_op being the only
one possible for HVM, PVH also having the option of using
HYPERVISOR_mmuext_op). This issue got introduced when HVM code was
switched to use compat_memory_op() - neither that nor
hypercall_xlat_continuation() were originally intended to be used by
other than PV guests (which can't enter 64-bit mode and hence have no
way to alter the high halves of 64-bit registers).

This is XSA-111.
