Hi Ian,

This patch looks good in general. I've only few comments, see them below.

I wondering if we can have more than 2^32-1 4K mapping sometimes...

That would be 16TB of memory, which isn't out of the question but we
don't currently support it. Still, not much harm in increase to a 64-bit

Sounds good.

I think we should document how we pass the argument to apply_p2m_changes
somewhere. Even better, use gmfn and nr_gfn, as x86 does, for
apply_p2m_changes and handle internally the pfn_to_paddr stuff. This
would avoid this kind of problem.

Arianna is sorting that all out in her mmio mapping series.

Oh right. Some of you will have to rebase his/her series on top of the other one :).
