does stefan put the mptable in first 1K?
good way is put mptable 0xf0000:0x100000.
Nothing wrong with that either. In freebios v1 when all of that code was introduced we had a lot of boards that did not map ram in the 0xa0000-0xfffff window. Which is probably why everything wound up so low. If I recall correctly even things that look for the linuxbios table can find it in the higher range as well.
Regardless the important thing is not to stomp in the legacy memory region below 0x500.
