I don't know if this will fix this bug, but it's definitely a bugfix. It was trashing random pages by overwriting them with pagetables...

Subject: x86_64: memory mapping: don't trash large pmd mapping

Don't trash a large pmd's data when mapping physical memory.
This is a bugfix for "x86_64: adjust mapping of physical pagetables
to work with Xen".
