    Hmmm... it seems like it only took @end because it always allocated
    the whole page table in one go. Always from the bottom to top. Am I
    missing something?

    If you were gonna do that, you could have just said that you objected
    to the reverting. The message was Request for Comments - soliciting

    As I wrote multiple times, I think the code as implemented is a bit
    heavy handed for the problem. And a bigger problem for me is that it
    kind of just piles on the existing messiness and worsens it. I really
    hope we wouldn't be doing that anymore.

    I tried to clean up the page table allocation code but the necessary
    changes felt a bit too large at this stage, so IMO that's best left to
    the next cycle.

    To me, it seems complicated for not good enough reasons. I'll defer
    the decision to x86 maintainers. Ingo, hpa, Thomas, what do you guys
