The pfn in question is returned by alloc_low_page and is equal to
e820_table_end, that should fall into the range
This range is allocated by find_early_table_space in the initial
pagetable mappings between 0x8000 and max_pfn_mapped, respecting the
reserved memblock regions.
Maybe we didn't reserve some ranges in there that should have been
What happen you apply this patch?
