Subject[RFC][PATCH 1/2] x86_64: Preallocate the fixmap pud and pmd entries.
Date

To use the debug device I need to work through a port so I need
to call ioreamp or similar. Since we are doing this very early
I chose to use a fixmap (because we are unlikely to free the mapping)
and because it is simple. If we preallocate the fixmap pud and pmd
entries the existing fixmap codes works anytime from power up without
modifications or memory allocations. So we don't need a special case.
