I think we're just having a miscommunication on what "physical
address" vs "virtual address" means. I wouldn't call logical addresses
in the P1 segment "virtual" because they're not remapped by the MMU.
Could you provide an example showing the type of address your
bootloader is currently passing to the kernel and why it needs to be
mapped by P1SEGADDR rather than phys_to_virt?
