[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 5/7] tools, libxl: parse optional start gfn from the iomem config option

Currently, the "iomem" domU config option allows to specify a machine
address range to be mapped to the domU. However, there is no way to
specify the guest address range used for the mapping. This commit
extends the iomem option handling code to parse an additional, optional
parameter: this parameter, if given, specifies the start guest address
used for the mapping; if no start guest address is given, a 1:1 mapping
is performed as default.

        - Add definition of a LIBXL_HAVE_BUILDINFO_IOMEM_START_GFN macro
          to indicate the availability of the new option.
        - Simplify the code parsing the new optional parameter by using
          the switch construct on the return value of the sscanf() function
          instead of calling the function twice.
        - Add a short paragraph to the manpage about the use of the iomem
          option to passthrough devices protected by an IOMMU.
        - Add comments to the fields of the "iomem" structure.
