So... this silently overrides the command-line argument.  The current code is
only a problem because we assign the default to a global variable, which must
be a compile-time constant.

I wonder if it's worth add an error message in handle_arg_reserved_va, and
moving the default initialization logic from the global variable to here, as

    if (HOST_LONG_BITS == 64 &&
        TARGET_VIRT_ADDR_SPACE_BITS <= 32 &&
        reserved_va == 0) {
        reserved_va = MAX_RESERVED_VA & qemu_host_page_mask;
    }

merging your comment with the moved comment from the global variable init.
