Subject[RFC PATCH 11/12] PAT 64b: devmem do not read pages not mapped in identity map
Enable valid_phys_addr_range for x86_64 and check whether the identity
mapping exists before reading /dev/mem. For reserved regions there is no
identity mappings any more and then cannot be read from /dev/mem.

Side effect is that dd of entire memory will not work any more, once there are
reserved holes in memory space.

TBD: Read reserved regions as 0xffff or something, and continue reading
across holes, till we reach the high_memory (end of memory).
