Yeah, since it's hard to know the MMIO range from the DSDT in XEN, we
permit full mmio capabilities for Dom0 and deny mmio access for some
devices e.g. uart. Then when Dom0 add those devices, call
XENMEM_add_to_physmap to map their MMIO ranges. This looks similar with
what x86 does.

    /* The hardware domain is initially permitted full I/O capabilities. */
    rc |= ioports_permit_access(d, 0, 0xFFFF);
    rc |= iomem_permit_access(d, 0UL, ~0UL);
    rc |= irqs_permit_access(d, 1, nr_irqs_gsi - 1);

Ah, I'll drop this at next version.
