kernel's setup.s query
my question is :
1) why there is a need for boot loader to set up paging and identity mapping ? because with segmentation itself, boot loader can move kernel to HIGH_MEM (0x010000)
why there is a need to enable paging ?
how does it make sense ?
anyway, paging could be setup and enabled by kernel (paging_init) after control is transferred to the kernel.
