 * Here we define all the compile-time 'special' virtual
 * addresses. The point is to have a constant address at
 * compile time, but to set the physical address only
 * in the boot process. We allocate these special  addresses
 * from the top of unused virtual memory (0xfd000000 - 1 page) backwards.
 * Also this lets us do fail-safe vmalloc(), we
 * can guarantee that these special addresses and
 * vmalloc()-ed addresses never overlap.
 * these 'compile-time allocated' memory buffers are
 * fixed-size 4k pages. (or larger if used with an increment
 * highger than 1) use fixmap_set(idx,phys) to associate
 * physical memory with fixmap indices.
 * TLB entries of such buffers will not be flushed across
 * task switches.

 * on UP currently we will have no trace of the fixmap mechanism,
 * no page table allocations, etc. This might change in the
 * future, say framebuffers for the console driver(s) could be
 * fix-mapped?
