Subject[PATCH] x86: 46 bit PAE support
Extend the maximum addressable memory on x86-64 from 2^44 to
2^46 bytes. This requires some shuffling around of the vmalloc
and virtual memmap memory areas, to keep them away from the
direct mapping of up to 64TB of physical memory.

This patch also introduces a guard hole between the vmalloc
area and the virtual memory map space. There's really no
good reason why we wouldn't have a guard hole there.

Signed-off-by: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

Testing: booted it on an x86-64 system with 6GB RAM. Did you really think
I had access to a system with 64TB of RAM? :)
