I continue to be unconvinced of the overall approach: The domain
builder continues to populate these regions when it shouldn't. Yet
once it doesn't, it would be most natural to simply communicate the
RAM regions to hvmloader, and hvmloader would use just that to
build the E820 table (and subsequently assign BARs).
