Some add_memory*() users add memory in small, contiguous memory blocks.
Examples include virtio-mem, hyper-v balloon, and the XEN balloon.

This can quickly result in a lot of memory resources, whereby the actual
resource boundaries are not of interest (e.g., it might be relevant for
DIMMs, exposed via /proc/iomem to user space). We really want to merge
added resources in this scenario where possible.

Let's provide an interface to trigger merging of applicable child
resources. It will be, for example, used by virtio-mem to trigger
merging of memory resources it added (via add_memory_driver()
managed) to its resource container.

Note: We really want to merge after the whole operation succeeded, not
directly when adding a resource to the resource tree (it would break
add_memory_resource() and require splitting resources again when the
operation failed - e.g., due to -ENOMEM).
