Subject[PATCHv2, RFC] x86/boot/compressed/64: Handle 5-level paging boot if kernel is above 4G
Date
This patch addresses shortcoming in current boot process on machines
that supports 5-level paging.

If bootloader enables 64-bit mode with 4-level paging, we need to
switch over to 5-level paging. The switching requires disabling paging.
It works fine if kernel itself is loaded below 4G.

If bootloader put the kernel above 4G (not sure if anybody does this),
we would loose control as soon as paging is disabled as code becomes
unreachable.

This patch implements trampoline in lower memory to handle this
situation.

Apart from trampoline itself we also need place to store top level page
table in lower memory as we don't have a way to load 64-bit value into
CR3 from 32-bit mode. We only really need 8-bytes there as we only use
the very first entry of the page table.

place_trampoline() would choose an address for the trampoline page.
The implementation is based on reserve_bios_regions(). We take a page
next to end of lowmem.

We only need the page for very short time, until main kernel image
setup its own page tables.
