Oops. Upon thinking about this a bit more, the problem we were having
was that we were trying to get physical 0xfe000000 mapped to virtual

The board we're using has firmware that we want to be able to call
after Linux is up and running. The FW runs from 0x3000-0x60000, but
refers to data up in 0xfe space. Our first naive attempts were to
use mmap from userland, but we ended up putting stuff in the kernel
and mapping flash directly with remap_page_range().
