    No it is entirely the BIOS's job to do that. It would be very hard for
    linux to safely change that.

    So in your case it would have been just fine with a simpler mapping.

    Weird. The message about the MTRR on all the CPUs not maching sound

    Looks to match the MTRR setup at least. So how much ram does the kernel
    actually want to use?
