Forgive me being difficult, but how exactly does your patch come anywhere
close to sortting out the reported regression by Kevin and Olof, and now
myself which is on ARM?

Your patch adds asm/processor.h to a header file, to allow architectures
to override ARCH_LOW_ADDRESS_LIMIT, but there is /no/ override for ARM,
so your patch has _zero_ effect there - we still end up with this being
0xffffffff, and we still end up with the thing being unable to boot.

Maybe you could describe what this ARCH_LOW_ADDRESS_LIMIT is, and what
it should be set to - I'm less than clear on how to set this given that
we have a multitude of different physical memory layouts - where memory
can start at almost any physical address.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: 5.8Mbps down 500kbps up. Estimation
in database were 13.1 to 19Mbit for a good line, about 7.5+ for a bad.
Estimate before purchase was "up to 13.2Mbit".
