However I haven't really thought it through yet, smalles like that could
as well just be handled by the caller of
arch_add_memory()/arch_remove_memory() eventually, passing it via
something like the altmap parameter.

Let's leave it in place for now, we can talk about that once we have new
patches from Oscar.
