Is there any way we can have the kernel do this automatically if there
are any free mtrr slots? I would guess this type of BIOS bug is pretty
common (desktop boards not validated with > 4GB of RAM), and having the
kernel throw away 4GB of memory unless the user does some fancy
scripting is not very friendly (not to mention the fact that things are
likely to be very slow until the mtrr fixup script runs).
