Not related to this patch... while you are re-working the guest layout.
Can you comment where does come from the GNTTAB_SIZE...?

Also, can you make sure that the GNTTAB_SIZE is greater or equal to the
maximum number of frames (maybe by overriding max_nr_grant_frames)?

The current implementation on Linux only care about the number of frames
given by Xen, the size of the table in the DT is not used. So the range
may overlap to something else.
