Anthony PERARD - July 20, 2011, 6:17 p.m.
A Xen guest memory is allocated by libxc. But this memory is not
allocated continuously, instead, it leaves the VGA IO memory space not
allocated, same for the MMIO space (at HVM_BELOW_4G_MMIO_START of size
HVM_BELOW_4G_MMIO_LENGTH).

So to reflect that, we do not register the physical memory for this two
holes. But we still keep only one RAMBlock for the all RAM as it is more
easier than have two separate blocks (1 above 4G). Also this prevent QEMU
from use the MMIO space for a ROM.
