[Xen-devel] [PATCH] pvgrub: fix crash when booting kernel with p2m list outside kernel mapping

When trying to boot a kernel with the p2m list not mapped by the
initial kernel mapping it can happen that pvgrub is failing as it is
keeping some page tables mapped.

Unmap the additional page tables created for the special p2m mapping
will avoid this failure.

This is a backport candidate for 4.7
