What do we do instead, just write the actual identity MFN value?
Does using 1UL<<30 (or 1UL<<62 on 64 bit, note that Jeremy recently
fixed FOREIGN_FRAME_BIT too) as IDENTITY_P2M_ENTRY keep the toolstack
happy while still allowing us to distinguish from identity from
happens-to-be-the-same as necessary?
To some extent 1-1 I/O regions could be considered foreign mappings (of
"memory" owned by DOMIO) so perhaps it's possible that setting the
FOREIGN_FRAME_BIT is both sufficient and correct?
