Subject: Re: [PATCH] Fix e820 end address with EFI

With the kernel that now boots (when max_pfn is set to = last e820 address regardless of type), efi_enter_virtual_mode() does not call efi_ioremap(). Maybe efi_ioremap() is what needs fixing? I should mention this is a regression. 2.6.26 worked, 2.6.27 does not, and seems like things stopped working in 2.6.26-git1. I will check to see if efi_ioremap() used to be called with a 2.6.26 kernel on this hardware and see where the mapped addresses were. Maybe I can verify efi_ioremap() is actually broken.
