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).
