    Subject[PATCH 2/3] xen/p2m: Reserve 4MB of _brk space for P2M leafs when populating back.
    When we release pages back during bootup:

    Freeing 9d-100 pfn range: 99 pages freed
    Freeing 9cf36-9d0d2 pfn range: 412 pages freed
    Freeing 9f6bd-9f6bf pfn range: 2 pages freed
    Freeing 9f714-9f7bf pfn range: 171 pages freed
    Freeing 9f7e0-9f7ff pfn range: 31 pages freed
    Freeing 9f800-100000 pfn range: 395264 pages freed
    Released 395979 pages of unused memory

    We then try to populate those pages back. In the P2M tree however
    the space for those leafs must be reserved - as such we use extend_brk.
    We reserve 4MB of _brk space, which means we can fit over
    524288 PFNs - which should be more than enough to cover. If we do
    run over that number, the code is smart enough to stop and not
    allocate anymore leafs.
