Probably it was done deliberately but I could not find any references
to this mapping in old kexec code or description in commit messages
why it was done. Or maybe it was mistake...

I have done kexec/kdump tests on Xen 4.3.1 without that mapping
and it works without any issue. Hence, I think that we could
backport it safely at least to Xen 4.3. However, I suppose that
it should also work for Xen 4.2.
