Not quite. I have it working with CONFIG_HIGHMEM, I've just forgotten
about cm_x300_fixup:

static void __init cm_x300_fixup(struct machine_desc *mdesc, struct tag
*tags,
char **cmdline, struct meminfo *mi)
{
/* Make sure that mi->bank[0].start = PHYS_ADDR */
for (; tags->hdr.size; tags = tag_next(tags))
if (tags->hdr.tag == ATAG_MEM &&
tags->u.mem.start == 0x80000000) {
tags->u.mem.start = 0xa0000000;
break;
}
}
