Check the e820 entries we get from qemu for ram entries and handle them accordingly:
(1) Entries overlapping with the lowmem range will be ignored. At least initially qemu will not send such entries for compatibility reasons. That may change in the future though if qemu needs a more recent seabios versions anyway for some reason. So better be prepared. (2) Adjust RamSizeOver4G variable if we find it being too small. Needed for guests with more that 1TB (this is the max amount of memory the three-byte cmmos interface can represent).
