Has no-one proposed using the nonlinear memory extension to also address memory hotplugging? After all, this will enable pages to be relocated in physical memory while still keeping their "logical" addresses (which are what the kernel would see), so the whole problem of remapping kernel memory (except, perhaps, anything used for DMA) should become much simpler...
