That's interesting. You're asking for a page size (0x2000) on a non-page
boundary (0xffc6.5000). The complaint is because it extends far enough
to overlap with what the map_page_range above (0xffc6.6000).
The question is where those two addresses are coming from? 0xffc6.6000
and 0xffc6.5000 are in the range Solaris would expect for Openboot -
whoever came up with 0xffc6.5000 got it wrong, if he needs 0x2000 bytes,
he needed to ask for 0xffc6.4000.

This is simply a matter of overlapping address ranges. Somewhere an
allocator is getting the wrong result.
