BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1771679


Older versions of Xen hypervisor cause Bionic and Artful guests to panic
at boot in '__xen_evtchn_do_upcall', as observed in AWS region cn-north-1
running Xen version 3.4.

[Test Case]

Attempt to launch an m1.small instance in AWS region cn-north-1.


Cherry-pick from mainline.

[Regression Potential]

Low: Only affects Xen guests running kernel >= 4.13 on older Xen hosts.
