[Xen-devel] [PATCH 2/3] xen/p2m: Reserve 4MB of _brk space for P2M leafs when populating back.

When we release pages back during bootup:

Freeing  9d-100 pfn range: 99 pages freed
Freeing  9cf36-9d0d2 pfn range: 412 pages freed
Freeing  9f6bd-9f6bf pfn range: 2 pages freed
Freeing  9f714-9f7bf pfn range: 171 pages freed
Freeing  9f7e0-9f7ff pfn range: 31 pages freed
Freeing  9f800-100000 pfn range: 395264 pages freed
Released 395979 pages of unused memory

We then try to populate those pages back. In the P2M tree however
the space for those leafs must be reserved - as such we use extend_brk.
We reserve 4MB of _brk space, which means we can fit over
524288 PFNs - which should be more than enough to cover. If we do
run over that number, the code is smart enough to stop and not
allocate anymore leafs.
