What's with the top posting? ;-)

Requesting the memory region as is done in this patch marks it as busy.

Yes, if we unmap the region immediately after devices are populated then
this whole point is moot with the assumption that this code isn't
running at the same time as the cbmem utility. I've done this already
and it is working on arm. I still need to build/boot/test on an x86
platform which I should be able to do tomorrow.
