SubjectRe: [PATCH -v2] EFI: Runtime services virtual mapping
From
Date
Okay... I see two problems.

1. It looks like we subtract the region size after, rather than before, assigning an address.

2. The second region is assigned the same address in the secondary kernel as in the first, implying the size of the first region was somehow set to zero.
