Hello Jim :-)

First thank you to help correcting my logics :-)

Agree....why I don't think in such a logic before...hrrrrrr :-)

So, that would be running mmap() scanning on early boot of Qemu, am  I right? 
from there, Qemu can take decision which area is free and which is already 
taken by host....Hm....looks like Qemu needs additional kernel module 
inserted to host's kernel to help Qemu on "memory layout" negotiation....:-)
