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 a flag (MEMHP_MERGE_RESOURCE) to specify that a resource
either created within add_memory*() or passed via add_memory_resource()
shall be marked mergeable and merged with applicable siblings.

To implement that, we need a kernel/resource interface to mark selected
System RAM resources mergeable (IORESOURCE_SYSRAM_MERGEABLE) and trigger
merging.

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).
