I'm really not thrilled about hard-coding these addresses, so I'd
love it if somebody could suggest a way to discover them from the
BIOS.

The E820 map doesn't reserve the last page:

BIOS-e820: 00000000fed1c000 - 00000000fed20000 (reserved)
BIOS-e820: 00000000fffa0000 - 00000000fffa7000 (reserved)

and I don't think there's any ACPI device that does either.

Bjorn
