ok. There is still a problem with the readability of kernel oopses, maybe
we should print PAGE_OFFSET in the oops as well? Also there are a few
'comfort' things left: auto-skipping memory in mem_init(), printing a
warning about 'lost memory'. It would also be nice to determine the exact
size of the needed 'high virtual memory window', i think this is hard as
we cannot predict how much vmalloc()/ioremap() space we will use?
