[Xen-devel] [PATCH] x86_64: do not assume head_64.S used 4KB pages when

From: Stefano Stabellini <stefano.stabellini@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

head_64.S, which sets up the initial page table on x86_64, is not aware
of PSE being enabled or disabled and it always allocates the initial
mapping using 2MB pages.

Therefore on x86_64 find_early_table_space shouldn't update the amount
of pages needed for pte pages depending on the size of the initial
mapping, because we know for sure that no pte pages have been allocated
