[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 0/8] xen: arm: support up to (almost) 1TB of guest RAM

This series rejigs the guest physical address space to allow for up to
1019GB of RAM, with up to 3GB below the 4GB boundary.

The second patch here (an error check) should be backported to 4.4 but
the rest are not suitable IMHO since they change the guest layout.
Although we reserve the right to do so I think we should avoid such
changes in stable branches.

Since last time there are a couple of new patches:
        libxl: use uint64_t not unsigned long long for addresses
        tools: arm: increase size of region set aside for guest grant
I have also factored out some renaming and code motion from "support up
to (almost) 1TB of guest RAM" into two new precursor patches:
        tools: arm: refactor code to setup guest p2m and fill it with RAM
        tools: arm: prepare for multiple banks of guest RAM

Other changes are noted in the individual patch changelogs.
