i'm confused.

so
--- linux-2.6.orig/arch/x86/kernel/efi.c
+++ linux-2.6/arch/x86/kernel/efi.c
@@ -475,10 +475,7 @@ void __init efi_enter_virtual_mode(void)
size = md->num_pages << EFI_PAGE_SHIFT;
end = md->phys_addr + size;

- if (PFN_UP(end) <= max_low_pfn_mapped)
- va = __va(md->phys_addr);
- else
- va = efi_ioremap(md->phys_addr, size);
+ va = efi_ioremap(md->phys_addr, size);

md->virt_addr = (u64) (unsigned long) va;
should be ok.

then how about use ioremap directly to replace fixed mapping in 64bit
with efi_ioremap?
