Yes, indeed. I can adjust my patch, but I would prefer not to do so.

I don't completely understand the background of this change, but from
what I know how the BIOS (at least on X86) allocates resources it
doesn't sounds correct to me.

Maybe we just need a Sparc specific quirk here instead of changing the
common logic?
