This reverts commit dfd74a1edfaba5864276a2859190a8d242d18952.

This has been fixed by commit dca4436d1cf9e0d237c which added the out
of bounds check to __add_memory, so that trying to add blocks past
MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS will fail.

Note the check in the Xen balloon driver was bogus anyway, as it
checked the start address of the resource, but it should instead test
the end address to assert the whole resource falls below
MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS.
