for 64bit x86, kernel_physical_mapping_init() will use
map_low_page()/call early_memmap() to access ram for page_table that is above
rather last mapped PFN.

the point is:
on system with 64g, usable ram will be [0,2048m), [4g, 64g)
init_memory_mapping will be called two times for them.
before putting page_table high,
page table will be two parts: one is just below 512M, and one below 2048m.
after putting page_table high,
page table will be two parts: one is just below 2048M, and one below 64G.

one of the purposes is finding biggest continuous big range under
1024m for kdump.

Thanks

Yinghai
