[PATCH 15/33] x86_64: Fix kernel direct mapping size check

From: Eric W. Biederman
Date: Tue Aug 01 2006 - 07:13:51 EST

Instead of using physical addresse of _end which has nothing to
do with knowing if the kernel fits within it's reserved
virtual addresses, verify the virtual address of _end fits
within in the kernel virtual address mapping.
