It seems like x86_64 should create modes that actually work, rather than
always using one named 'P52', but then needing to probe for the actual
number of supported physical bits. Indeed testing all x86_64 supported
modes, like aarch64 does, would even make more sense in this test.

Are we sure > 39 bits will work with this test framework? I can't
recall what led me to the FIXME above, other than things not working.
It seems I was convinced we couldn't have more bits due to how pml4's
were allocated, but maybe I misinterpreted it.
