Vivek, are those pte pages still all contiguous?

Yeah, that's probably it. Keith, I'm trying to think of reasons why we
need the mask here:

#define boot_pte_index(address) \
(((address) >> PAGE_SHIFT) & (BOOT_PTE_PTRS - 1))

and I can't think of any other than just masking out the top of the
virtual address. You could do this a bunch of other ways, like __pa().

This might just work:

static unsigned long boot_pte_index(unsigned long vaddr)
return __pa(vaddr) >> PAGE_SHIFT;
