  o Switch to physical addressing before dereferencing the VHPT
    bucket pointer. The virtual mapping may not be present in the
    translation cache. This will result in a nested TLB fault at
    a place we don't handle (and don't want to handle).
  o Make sure there's a stop after the rfi instruction, otherwise
    its behaviour is undefined.
  o Make sure we switch back to virtual addressing before doing
    a rfi. Behaviour is undefined otherwise.
