SubjectRe: [PATCH -v2] EFI: Runtime services virtual mapping
From
Date
The address that faults is interesting in that it is indeed just below -4G.  The question at hand is probably what information you are using to build the EFI mappings in the secondary kernel and what could make it not match the primary.

Assuming it isn't as simple as the mappings never get built at all.
