[Xen-devel] [PATCH RESEND] xen/gntdev: Grant maps should not be subject to NUMA balancing

Doing so will cause the grant to be unmapped and then, during
fault handling, the fault to be mistakenly treated as NUMA hint

In addition, even if those maps could partcipate in NUMA
balancing, it wouldn't provide any benefit since we are unable
to determine physical page's node (even if/when VNUMA is

Marking grant maps' VMAs as VM_IO will exclude them from being
part of NUMA balancing.
