[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen/arm: Allocate memory for dom0 from the bottom with the 1:1 Workaround

On Linux, the option CONFIG_ARM_PATCH_PHYS_VIRT (by default enabled) allows
the Kernel to be loaded anywhere (or nearly) by patching the translation
pv<->virt at boot time.

The current solution in Linux assuming that the delta physical address -
virtual address is always negative. A positive delta will destroy all the
optimisation to modify only a part of the translation instruction (add/sub).

By default, Xen is allocating memory from the top of memory and then
goes down. To avoid booting issue with Linux, we must allocate memory
from the bottom (ie starting from 0).
