SubjectRe: Using video memory as system memory
Hi!

It might be possible (don't know why it does not work for you), but
bear in mind that PCI is *very* slow compared to your main memory.

[Oh, you might want to add that memory late in boot phase. At begining
of kernel boot, that area is probably not mapped, yet. PCI is
initialized later.]
