This is an oversight on my part. I thought I wouldn't need this test
because the memblock-based test is more accurate, but I didn't think
through how high memory actually works.

No. The Wii works fine with the p < virt_to_phys(high_memory) test, and
doesn't use CONFIG_HIGHMEM. I'll send a version two of this patchset.


Thanks for testing,
