Hmm, the ia64 privcmd_mmap() is certainly interesting. It is another
approach to the same problem: they explicitly pre-register some of the
gpfn space to the appropriate mfn space.

Long-term, that's probably a better approach, since it only hijacks gpfn
space as needed, rather than halving the physical address space. For the
moment though, it also looks like a fair amount of more code... :)
