The fuzzy math is that for a VIF, you end up using 512 grants. For a VBD
it is 352 grants. With V1 you have 512 grants in a page, with V2 you have
256. So roughly the math is that you can at max 31VIFs and 1VBD with V1
(PVHVM guests) and 15VIFs and 1VBD with V2 (so all PV guests).

I would increase the value, but I don't know what a good value is.
