This series updates the generic code so that either "low" memory or the f-segment can be used for storing drive mapping information. It also updates the virtio code to use "low" memory for its allocations. I think there is a good chance this series will, in practice, avoid running out of memory when a large number of virtio drives are available.
There are other ways to tackle this problem (eg, more of the virtio storage could be moved into "high" memory), but I think this approach has the benefit of avoiding a "big bang" patch series.

Thank you very much for the fix! It would be nice to have it in 1.11.
Thanks. I committed this series.
