Albeit I would also prefer this to not be PVH specific. Ideally I
would like both PVH and HVM to share the logic to mark the reserved
regions in the memory map. I guess this can be fixed afterwards by
moving away this logic from hvmloader and handling the creation of
the memory map for both HVM and PVH in libxl.

Thanks, Roger.
