Hmm.  If this is device memory you generally don't want that.  I'm not 
actually sure how to do this at runtime.  If you don't mind having a local
hack you can add a change in the MD startup code (e.g. in hammer_time()
in sys/amd64/amd64/machdep.c) to adjust the ranges added to
phys_avail[] and dump_avail[].
