Without a low identity mapping early_printk will not work and printk
definitely not.

You should do the test in the 16 bit boot code. In fact it should
already do it by testing the CPUID REQUIRED_MASK.

The only way this could be entered is if someone skips the 16bit boot code
by using kexec, but has the wrong flags. I'm not sure how to handle
it there.

Seems quite fragile. I'm sure that would hurt later.

That will break if the kernel is > 4GB won't it? Also same for pmd.
Also not handling NX is dubious, although you can probably get away from it there.

Why not set it in the pgd which is identical? Also the proper test is !pgd_none()

!pmd_none()

Are you sure there will be enough memory here? You might need to use
an e820 allocator similar to x86-64.

Typical problems is you running into some other memory used by
someone else.

pte_present(). Ok the old code was wrong too, but no need to do that again.

Unrelated?
