[Xen-devel] [PATCH 4/4] xen: do not create the extra e820 region at an a

From: Stefano Stabellini <stefano.stabellini@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Do not add the extra e820 region at a physical address lower than 4G
because it breaks e820_end_of_low_ram_pfn().

It is OK for us to move the xen_extra_mem_start up and down because this
is the index of the memory that can be ballooned in/out - it is memory
not available to the kernel during bootup.
