Yes from 2MB up to (but not including) 4MB.

It is an error (I think) that this patch bugs if Xen is loaded at
exactly 2MB, since then the virtual and identity-physical mappings are
the same.

This is the virtual mapping, which always starts at exactly 2MB, so that
can only happen if Xen is larger than 2MB, which we assume is not the
case both here and in various bits of the C code start of day
relocating/setup etc.

I meant to come back and fix this and forgot.
