It sets its own vma->vm_ops to track mmap/munmap.
When the region is completely unmapped, pages of a foreign domain
are zapped from dom0.

I attached the patch which implements it.
(HYPERVISOR_add_physmap(), HYPERVISOR_zap_physmap() are ia64 specific
It can't be applied to xen-unstable.hg nor xen-ia64-unstable.hg
cleanly because it is one of the series patches which is being merged.
The patch will be merged into xen-ia64-unstable.hg in the near future.
(At least I hope so)
I think it can be simplified using PageForeign() and its families.
When I wrote it I did't want to use PG_foreign bit.
