Hi Michael,

I think this is ready to go as a first version. There are a couple of
future work items related to kexec/kdump:
- Teach kexec-tools/kexec_file_load() to not place the kexec
kernel/initrd onto virtio-mem added memory.
- Teach kexec-tools/kdump to consider a bigger number of memory
resources for dumping.

In general, as virtio-mem adds a lot of memory resources, we might want
to tweak performance in that area as well. Future stuff.

So I suggest queuing this. If you need a resend, please let me know.

Cheers!
