Subject: xen/events: Don't move disabled irqs

commit f0f393877c71ad227d36705d61d1e4062bc29cf5 upstream.

Commit ff1e22e7a638 ("xen/events: Mask a moving irq") open-coded
irq_move_irq() but left out checking if the IRQ is disabled. This broke
resuming from suspend since it tries to move a (disabled) irq without
holding the IRQ's desc->lock. Fix it by adding in a check for disabled

The resulting stacktrace was:
