Alexander Graf - July 1, 2010, 10:42 a.m.
We will soon start and replace instructions from the text section with
other, paravirtualized versions. To ease the readability of those patches
I split out the generic looping and magic page mapping code out.

This patch still only contains stubs. But at least it loops through the
text section :).
