Jann validly points out that with a caller bogusly requesting a zero-
element batch with non-zero high command bits (the ones used for
continuation encoding), the assertion right before the call to
hypercall_create_continuation() would trigger. A similar situation would
arise afaict for non-empty batches with op and/or length zero in every
While we want the former to succeed (as we do elsewhere for similar
no-op requests), the latter can clearly be converted to an error, as
this is a state that can't be the result of a prior operation.
Take the opportunity and also correct the order of argument checks:
We shouldn't accept zero-length elements with unknown bits set in "op".
Also constify cache_flush()'s first parameter.
