Well, it depends on what is the first in the KALSR group. The fix will not
be needed if direct mapping comes the first.

But I would rather go with the patch anyway. The hypervisor hole is part
of ABI and we should not calculate it based on other movable entity
(direct mapping, LDT remap, whatever). It's too fragile.
