I don't know when this document was written. But I think this is


#define PAGE_OFFSET             ((unsigned long)__PAGE_OFFSET)
#define __pa(x)                 ((unsigned long)(x)-PAGE_OFFSET)
#define __va(x)                 ((void *)((unsigned long)(x)+PAGE_OFFSET))

PAGE_OFFSET is defined to be 0xc0000000 in normal linux kernels.
If you look at objdump -h vmlinux, you can figure out that the
text starts at PAGE_OFFSET + 1M virtual = 1M physical.

Also, see how page tables are initialized in
