Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 02/21] xen/arm: make allocate_memory work for non 1:1 mapped guests

I would speculate about GUEST_RAMx_BASE and GUEST_RAMx_SIZE macros. Those values might not fit the real SoC memory map. And it becomes a problem once we decided to assign some peripheral directly to the guest because a RAM space specified to VM would overlap with IO range of the assigned device. In my practice, we always align those macros with the SoC memory map. This becomes more convenient and practical than IO remapping.

It might be the moment to get those values configurable for the guests. At least for those, which are configured from the device tree. Here naturally fit making `memory` property similar to `reg` - the list of <base, size> values.
