Subject[PATCH 4/20] x86_64: Cleanup the early boot page table


- Merge physmem_pgt and ident_pgt, removing physmem_pgt. The merge
is broken as soon as mm/init.c:init_memory_mapping is run.
- As physmem_pgt is gone don't export it in pgtable.h.
- Use defines from pgtable.h for page permissions.
- Fix the physical memory identity mapping so it is at the correct
address.
- Remove the physical memory mapping from wakeup_level4_pgt it
is at the wrong address so we can't possibly be usinging it.
- Simply NEXT_PAGE the work to calculate the phys_ alias
of the labels was very cool. Unfortuantely it was a brittle
special purpose hack that makes maitenance more difficult.
Instead just use label - __START_KERNEL_map like we do
everywhere else in assembly.
