What ensures this doesn't actually happen?


We have basically three options here:

- Die early (my patch).
- Issue a warning that the critical situation has been detected and hope
  for the best by not doing the remap, but probably run into strange
  situations when the discrepancy between E820 map and memory usage is
  becoming problematic.
- Do the remap like today and die eventually when the relocated page is
  used for p2m/m2p translations (no real option).
