That unfortunately results in unaligned mappings

[    9.630334] iommu: unaligned: iova 0xbff40000 pa 0x0000000801a3b000 size 0x4000 min_pagesz 0x4000

I'll take a closer look later this week and see if I can fix it.

I'd like to try and see if we can make this a properly-supported thing.

That will likely take a few iterations but realistically the rest of the drivers
required to make this platform actually useful (and especially the display controller
and GPU drivers) won't be ready for a few more months anyway. And even on 4KB PAGE_SIZE
kernels half the USB ports and NVMe will work fine, which should be enough to install
a distro and some third-party package that just ships the distro kernel with 16KB
pages.
