Well, that's when highmen support was introduced into sparc32, right?

That's quite the same output I get. However, supplying mem=128M
(I have got 128MB) at least allows me to boot up with about
25MB of RAM (sparc has holes...):

It's a SparcStation 10 w/ 2 CPUs.

Anton, do you have any clue where changes could have broke SS10 support?
