The thing is, then I have to expose "physmem" to something outside
memblock.c. That's what I wanted to avoid here. (instead, have a minimal
interface that is sufficient enough for this special case of physmem -
add memory during boot, walk memory after boot. Performance is not an
issue).

Ack to both!
