this is a configuration option telling about the way
the buffer gets allocated: either by the frontend or
backend (be_alloc -> buffer allocated by the backend)

in this use-case we map pages provided by the backend
(yes, I know this can be a problem from both security
POV and that DomU can die holding pages of Dom0 forever:
but still it is a configuration option, so user decides
if her use-case needs this and takes responsibility for
such a decision).

Please see description of the buffering modes in xen_drm_front.h
specifically for backend allocated buffers:
 *******************************************************************************
 * 2. Buffers allocated by the backend
 *******************************************************************************
 *
 * This mode of operation is run-time configured via guest domain
configuration
 * through XenStore entries.
 *
 * For systems which do not provide IOMMU support, but having specific
 * requirements for display buffers it is possible to allocate such buffers
 * at backend side and share those with the frontend.
 * For example, if host domain is 1:1 mapped and has DRM/GPU hardware
expecting
 * physically contiguous memory, this allows implementing zero-copying
 * use-cases.
