modified to accomplish a direct page -> bus translation, without requiring
a virtual address mapping (unlike the earlier scheme of virtual address
-> bus translation). So this works uniformly for high-memory pages (which
do not have a correponding kernel virtual address space mapping) and
do not have a corresponding kernel virtual address space mapping) and
low-memory pages.
