SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 8/8] KVM: selftests: Move large memslots above KVM internal memslots in _vm_create
Would it be viable to allocate at 4G be default and then add another
interface for allocations at low memory addresses? For most tests, I
don't think there's any value to having the backing paddrs below 3G.
