Add a new feature which supports sending the page information with
a bitmap. The current implementation uses PFNs array, which is not
very efficient. Using bitmap can improve the performance of
inflating/deflating significantly

The page bitmap header will used to tell the host some information
about the page bitmap. e.g. the page size, page bitmap length and
start pfn.
