I see a problem here. If we create  page table as a new segment then, 
how can we verify in purgatory that sha for page table is correct? We 
need page table before sha verification start,and we can not rely the 
page table created by first kernel until it's sha is verified. So a 
chicken-egg problem.

I think, creating page table will just take fraction of second and 
should be good even in purgatory, What do you say?
