As said earlier, a consumer of these data may now be unable to initialize 
itself properly. Without the patch it would be able to size its private data 
structures properly to p2m_size. With the patch it can not know in advance what 
the upper limit might be.

There is no in-tree consumer that is affected, and I do not have an out-of-tree 
consumer that might be broken by this change.

Just saying..
