Actually this is not really true, since we remap memory to make it
contiguous. Having holes in memory also means having holes in mem_map.

It's been done already and support for this is working just fine on
UltraSparc for example. See the linux-patches archive incoming
category for my diffs which implement this and are scheduled to go in
when Linus gets a chance to look at it.
