libxc: after saving, unmap correct amount for live_m2p

With some help from Olaf, I've finally got to the bottom of an issue I
came across while trying to implement save/restore in the libvirt
libxenlight driver.  After issuing the save operation, the saved
domain was not being cleaned up properly and left in this state from
xl's perspective

xen33:# xl list
Name                   ID   Mem VCPUs      State   Time(s)
Domain-0                0  6821     8     r-----     122.5
(null)                  2     2     2     --pssd      10.8

Checking the libvirtd /proc/$pid/maps I found this

7f3798984000-7f3798b86000 r--s 00002000 00:03 4026532097

So not all all pages belonging to the domain were unmapped from
libvirtd.  In tools/libxc/xc_domain_save.c we found that
P2M_FL_ENTRIES were being mapped but only P2M_FLL_ENTRIES were being
unmapped.  The attached patch changes the unmapping to use the same
P2M_FL_ENTRIES macro.  I'm not too familiar with this code though so
posting here for review.

I suspect this was not noticed before since most (all?) processes
doing save terminate after the save and are not long-running like

This change should be backported to relevant earlier trees. -iwj
