  Rather than add a new API, now that we have virDomainSetMemoryFlags()
I don't see why we could not use and extra flag on that API,
VIR_DOMAIN_MAX_MEM and use the same entry point.

  virDomainSetMaxMemory and virDomainSetMemory are separate because we
didn't add a flag for them, that was a mistake, but now we can
tunnel maximum memory changes though virDomainSetMemoryFlags()

  We would then allow
VIR_DOMAIN_MEM_LIVE -> change live memory target
VIR_DOMAIN_MEM_CONFIG -> change memory target on config i.e. next reboot
VIR_DOMAIN_MEM_LIVE | VIR_DOMAIN_MAX_MEM -> change live max memory (if feasible)
VIR_DOMAIN_MEM_CONFIG | VIR_DOMAIN_MAX_MEM -> change max memory on config

Adding more API may lead to more confusion than one API with all various
cases explained at a single place.
