SubjectRe: [PATCh] x86: overmapped fix when 4K pages on tail - 64bit

applied to tip/x86/core, thanks Yinghai. Lets hope it all goes well,
this is a rather scary change - but it's also fairly clean.

perhaps add a comment to the limit of 5 of mapping ranges - to point out
that the number of mapping ranges depends on our programming, not on any
external factor. I.e. if anyone adds a new mapping range to the kernel
for any purpose, it must be extended - but otherwise it cannot run out
due to new hardware.
