Subject[PATCH] [33/36] CPA: Make kernel_text test match boot mapping initialization
Date

The boot direct mapping initialization used a different test to check if a
page was part of the kernel mapping than c_p_a(). Make them use
a common function.

Also round up to a large page size to be sure and check for the beginning
of the kernel address to handle highly loaded kernels better.

This gives a small semantic change of NX applying to always 2MB areas
on !PSE && NX systems, but that's an obscure case even considering
DEBUG_PAGEALLOC.
