I don't think we need to do the finding step at that early time, in
head64.c stage.

Before pagetables are setup, we can use early_ioremap() to map the
memory we want to access. We don't need to use phys addr. We can do
it in setup_arch(), which has nothing to do with 32bit or 64bit.

Would you please give some more info about this, and explain why finding
override tables in head64.c stage is helpful for xen ?

Thanks.
