    well I must admit that I don't understand why... I suppose you refered
    to that section in ldd3:

    An interesting limitation of remap_pfn_range is that it gives
    access only to reserved pages and physical addresses above the
    top of physical memory.

    I take a quick look at the implementation of remap_pfn_range() and
    there's no such limitation I can see (fortunately).
