You have to map in the thing in chunks (it's not only the way it works, it's
the only way it can ever work). However, it's not too hard to do this as
portably as anything else in the kernel:

void * addr = vremap(0xfffdff80 & PAGE_MASK, PAGE_SIZE);

If you want to make _really_ sure, you actually map two pages (in case the 0x70
bytes could possibly be in two different pages, but that's not possible in this
case unless the page-size ridiculously small). The you need to do some "offset
within area" stuff, but that's easy enough by using PAGE_MASK/PAGE_SIZE.
