I'm the confused one.

In my *first* set of patches to do this, I missed making the espfix64
area global. This new code apparently got it right, but I assumed the
"new" global area that showed up was a mistake, thus this patch.

I'll change this patch into a commenting patch that calls out the need
for keeping _PAGE_GLOBAL.
