Your bios does not have RAM page aligned...

[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009dc00 (usable)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 000000000009dc00 - 00000000000a0000 (reserved)
assume that partial page is used SMI. let's leave the whole page alone for SMI

Can you please apply attached patch about e820 ram page alignement?

Thanks

Yinghai
Subject: [PATCH] x86: Align e820 ram range to page

Some bios provided e820 ram entries are not page aligned.

To make later processing simple. We could round up those range to
to page aligned.
