  To: Xen-devel; +Cc: Andrew Cooper, Jan Beulich

c/s cf39362 "x86: use 2M superpages for text/data/bss mappings" served two
purposes; to map the primary code and data with appropriate pagetable
permissions (rather than unilaterally RWX), and to reduce the TLB pressure.

The extra alignment exposed a SYSLinux issue, and was partly reverted by c/s
0b8a172 "x86: partially revert use of 2M mappings for hypervisor image".

This change reinstates the pagetable permission improvements while avoiding
the 2M alignment issue.
