In that specific case, I beleive it's fair enough to do the fixup in the
kernel for a couple of reasons. One is that can be kept fairly self
contained in the ps3 code (by resetting the LMB available ranges) and
the other is that not doing so would make the existing bootloader unable
to boot new kernels, which is annoying.
