[Xen-devel] [PATCH resend] xen: avoid early crash of memory limited dom0

Commit b1c9f169047b ("xen: split counting of extra memory pages...")
introduced an error when dom0 was started with limited memory.

The problem arises in case dom0 is started with initial memory and
maximum memory being the same and exactly a multiple of 1 GB. The
kernel must be configured without CONFIG_XEN_BALLOON_MEMORY_HOTPLUG
for the problem to happen. In this case it will crash very early
during boot due to the virtual mapped p2m list not being large
enough to be able to remap any memory:

(XEN) Domain 0 crashed: rebooting machine in 5 seconds.

This can be avoided by allocating aneough space for the p2m to cover
the maximum memory of dom0 plus the identity mapped holes required
for PCI space, BIOS etc.
