Finally success!

Didn't notice it before, but my efi memmap has:
[ 0.000000] EFI: mem00: type=3, attr=0xf, range=[0x0000000000000000-0x0000000000008000) (0MB)

Later on this range gets reserved for bios:

[ 0.000000] e820 update range: 0000000000000000 - 0000000000010000 (usable) ==> (reserved)
[ 0.000000] e820 remove range: 00000000000a0000 - 0000000000100000 (usable)

So I've added a check for e820.

Also with some digging into the swapper warning, it appears to be because
some memory was allocated in the _init part of the kernel, which you didn't check for.
this probably caused the warnings I had. Now I made sure to cover
the entire kernel from _text to _end, which should cover the entire kernel.
