xen/balloon: set a mapping for ballooned out pages
Currently ballooned out pages are mapped to 0 and have INVALID_P2M_ENTRY in the p2m. These ballooned out pages are used to map foreign grants by gntdev and blkback (see alloc_xenballooned_pages). Allocate a page per cpu and map all the ballooned out pages to the corresponding mfn. Set the p2m accordingly. This way reading from a ballooned out page won't cause a kernel crash (see http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2012-12/msg01154.html).
