Make vt_vga reserve the memory it uses

Yes, I'm aware of the issue. It comes from the fact that FreeBSD/Xen uses the
holes in the memory map to map the grant table, foreign memory from other
domains, &c.

The problem is that the vt_vga driver doesn't reserve the memory region it
uses, so Xen will happily use it for it's ends, this as you already realized
ends up very badly.

I'm attaching a crappy patch that solves this by making vt_vga register the
memory it uses, but the patch is incomplete:

 * It unconditionally reserves the memory, even if vt_vga is not used.
 * I've not checked if other vt_* drivers have the same issue.
