+Current X86-64 implementations support up to 46 bits of address space (64 TB),
+which is our current limit. This expands into MBZ space in the page tables.
We map EFI runtime services in the 'efi_pgd' PGD in a 64Gb large virtual
memory window (this size is arbitrary, it can be raised later if needed).
