x86, mm: Make sure to find a 2M free block for the first mapped area
Henrik reported that his MacAir 3.1 would not boot with | commit 8d57470d8f859635deffe3919d7d4867b488b85a | Date: Fri Nov 16 19:38:58 2012 -0800 | | x86, mm: setup page table in top-down It turns out that we do not calculate the real_end properly: We try to get 2M size with 4K alignment, and later will round down to 2M, so we will get less then 2M for first mapping, in extreme case could be only 4K only. In Henrik's system it has (1M-32K) as last usable rage is [mem 0x7f9db000-0x7fef8fff]. The problem is exposed when EFI booting have several holes and it will force mapping to use PTE instead as we only map usable areas. To fix it, just make it be 2M aligned, so we can be guaranteed to be able to use large pages to map it.
