Subject[PATCH V2] xen-swiotlb: exchange memory with Xen only when pages are contiguous
Commit 4855c92dbb7 "xen-swiotlb: fix the check condition for
xen_swiotlb_free_coherent" only fixed memory address check condition
on xen_swiotlb_free_coherent(), when memory was not physically
contiguous and tried to exchanged with Xen via
xen_destroy_contiguous_region which lead to kernel panic.

The correct check conditions to make Xen hypercall to revert the
memory back from its 32-bit pool are:
1) Above its DMA bit mask (for example 32-bit devices can only address
up to 4GB, and we may want 4GB+2K), and
2) It's physically contiguous.

Thank you Boris for pointing it out.
