SubjectRe: [PATCH 12/12] EFI: Runtime services virtual mapping

The kernel I referring is the boot kernel aka the 1st kernel,
the boot loader is grub2 from Fedora 19.

[sorry for top reply because of using webmail]

Hang on, which kernel are you referring to here? The boot kernel or the
kexec'd kernel? I thought you were saying you noticed the overlap when
running in the second (kexec'd) kernel?

The only reason that you would see this overlap in the first (boot)
kernel is if the bootloader messed up and allocated the kernel text as
EfiBootServicesCode/Data. I'd like to believe no bootloaders are still
doing that.
