Really, KSEG0 range is 0x00000000 to 0x20000000, and 0x08000000 to 0x10000000
is definitely within that range.

But I'd agree that 0x08000000 to 0x10000000 (32MB) seems too small for kernel
text and data. So yeah, it makes sense to load kernel into XKPHYS.

My sugesstion is, kernel does not have to be aware of the mirror deisgn.
Say that you have DDR fully mapped at 0x100000000, you can split memory
space into two trunks: 0x08000000 to 0x10000000 and 0x102000000 to end
of the dram. Since memblock always allocate from first continuous range
in system, we can guarantee that ebase is allocated with in the first
