What I am aware of at this moment is,
(some of the following can be covered by machine vector, though.)

- early setup before start_kernel()
  Currently early_xen_setup() is directly called.
  Eventually extending ia64 boot protocol would be necessary, though.

- Initialization hooks
  struct pv_init_ops?
        void (*arch_setup_early)(void)
        void (*banner);
        void (*pre_pasing_init)(void);
        void (*post_pasing_init)(void);
        void (*post_allocator_init)(void);

- irq hooks
  struct pv_irq_ops
  - init_IRQ(), irq_init()
  - registering chip type
  - assign_irq_vector()
  - free_irq_vector()
  - register_percpu_irq()  
  - send_ipi()
  - resend_irq()

- IOSAPIC hooks
  struct pv_iosapic_ops
  - iosapic_init()
  - iosapic_read()
  - iosapic_write()
