xen: remove size limit of privcmd-buf mapping interface
Currently the size of hypercall buffers allocated via /dev/xen/hypercall is limited to a default of 64 memory pages. For live migration of guests this might be too small as the page dirty bitmask needs to be sized according to the size of the guest. This means migrating a 8GB sized guest is already exhausting the default buffer size for the dirty bitmap. There is no sensible way to set a sane limit, so just remove it completely. The device node's usage is limited to root anyway, so there is no additional DOS scenario added by allowing unlimited buffers. While at it make the error path for the -ENOMEM case a little bit cleaner by setting n_pages to the number of successfully allocated pages instead of the target size.
