The balloon code was going from the end of its region down, and those
regions were in the p2m_missing (and p2m_mid_missing) zone. Which is
correct, except that the alloc_p2m did not know how to handle this.
So it never actually allocated the middle or entry level pages
which would contain the newly added PFNs.
I've rolled this patch in the
xen/mmu: Add the notion of identity (1-1) mapping.
patch soon to be posted.
