At the moment, the fixmap table is only hooked when earlyprintk is used.
This is fine today because in C land, the fixmap is not used by anyone
until the the boot CPU is switching to the runtime page-tables.

In the future, the boot CPU will not switch between page-tables to
avoid TLB incoherency. Thus, the fixmap table will need to be always
hooked beofre any use. Let's start doing it now in setup_fixmap().

Lastly, document the behavior and the main registers usage within the
function.
