[Xen-devel] [RFC PATCH] ARM 32: Workaround for memory problem >1gb on last section

setup_xenheap_mappings setup head memory on Arm 32 has a limit of 1GB.
On system with large memory is possible that there are no blocks of memory
smaller than 1gb leading xenheap_pages to be more than 1gb.
This cause memory errors trying to access heap after the 1gb limit.

I actually consider this patch as RFC as the pages are allocated at the end
of the block found however I don't think is safe to assume that the end is
aligned to 32mb as required.
