[PATCH v1 3/3] virtio-mem: Add memory with MHP_DRIVER_MANAGED

We don't want /sys/firmware/memmap entries and we want to indicate
our memory as "System RAM (driver managed)" in /proc/iomem. This is
especially relevant for kexec-tools, which have to be updated to
support dumping virtio-mem memory after this patch. Expected behavior in
- Don't use this memory when creating a fixed-up firmware memmap. Works
  now out of the box on x86-64.
- Don't use this memory for placing kexec segments. Works now out of the
  box on x86-64.
- Consider "System RAM (driver managed)" when creating the elfcorehdr
  for kdump. This memory has to be dumped. Needs update of kexec-tools.

With this patch on x86-64:

        00000000-00000fff : Reserved
        00001000-0009fbff : System RAM
        fffc0000-ffffffff : Reserved
        100000000-13fffffff : System RAM
