Yes, they should. Judging by setup.c though, you would think the
opposite... in any case I fixed it. Please apply - and yes, I tested
compile both ways.
VMI initialiation can relocate the fixmap, causing early_ioremap
to malfunction if it is initialized before the relocation.
To fix this, VMI activation is split into two phases; the detection,
which must happen before setting up ioremap, and the activation,
which must happen after parsing early boot parameters.

This fixes a crash on boot when VMI is enabled under VMware.
