I have a little TODO list in the cover letter, and fixing this is on
it.

As for what the limitation is, I'm not really sure. When I enable e.g.
4k pages, it just hangs as soon as the bootloader branches to the
kernel, and doesn't print the kernel's hello world or anything. This
is much before XPFO's initialization code is even run, so it's
probably something simple, but I haven't figured out what yet.

Cheers,

Tycho
