I'm pretty sure the memory map we get here is an extension of the
original PV-only get_e820 hypercall, which *does* include both the
lowmem and highmem regions.

In any case, it's pretty clear from the patched code that Tiejun is
removing the old code which created the lowmem and highmem regions and
is not replacing it.  Where do you think the highmem region he's
looking for was coming from?
