Subjectmemory detection and bios
bios can only report 64Meg.  Is there a reason the kernel can't do
a search for the memory boundary if 64Meg is available? [e.g. check
at 128M, 256M, ... then binary search for boundary when get a miss --
maybe do something quick and simple to check for a proper boundary like
check the location immediately past the last known good location.]

If this causes problems on some machines it could be made a config option.

For people whose bioses report the wrong value, this could be made
"always on" instead of "only if 64M reported".

Or should I send a patch instead of a description?
