x86/boot: Clean up l?_bootmap[] construction

The need for Xen to be identity mapped into the bootmap is not obvious, and
differs between the MB and EFI boot paths.

The EFI side is further complicated by an attempt to cope with with l2_bootmap
only being 4k long. This is undocumented, confusing, only works if Xen is the
single object wanting mapping.

The pageables are common to both the MB and EFI builds, so simplify the EFI
bootmap construction code to make exactly one identity-map of Xen, which now
makes the two paths consistent. Comment both pieces of logic, explaining what
the mappings are needed for.

Finally, leave a linker assert covering the fact that plenty of code blindly
assumes that Xen is less that 16M. This wants fixing in due course.
