    If you are referring to Badram patch by Rick van Rein
    (http://rick.vanrein.org/linux/badram/), it doesn't detect the bad ram,
    memtest86 does that part (and does it well) -- you enter then enter the
    badram clusters as boot param. But I have to say badram patch works
    marvellously (thanks, Rick.) Shame it didn't find its way to standard
    kernel.
