- proper guest memory setup

During merge with upstream, the call to qemu_alloc_physram dropped under
the table (due to removal of phys_ram_base from qemu). And that means we
no longer call kvm_setup_guest_memory (fork will cause troubles, deja
vu...) and -mempath is broken. Sorry, I'm not deep enough into all parts
to provide a quick-fix.
