According to the RPA (item E7-41 to be exact), the block-list can be
anywhere under 4 gigs.  RTAS will make hypervisor calls to access this

I would infer the reason why they want to allow the block-list outside
the RMO is otherwise it may have been difficult for the OS to get an
entire flash image under the RMO boundary.
