While looking at the code, I noticed this will only work
if you can map all of the memory with wired TLB entries.
If you have more than 24M of memory, make sure you
enable CONFIG_MODULES to eliminate the TLB miss
optimization that will certainly crash a system by failing
to look up kernel PTEs correctly.
