In that case hotplug should fail. I'm very much in agreement with
Kevin that an override should be possible if there's any risk of the
detection done now could cause problems on certain systems (as
pointed out before, I'm mainly concerned about RMRRs being
defined in regions that overlap where the guest's BIOS wants to
be placed).
