alloc_pages does not guarantee to return machine contiguous pages. As a
hack, you could use dma_alloc_coherent. The correct approach is to find
out all the mfns that are in use and do multiple direct_remap_area calls
as appropriate. In user space, things are rather nicer as you can use
the xc_map_foreign_batch.
