Right, here is cbmem console output, which was "-c" not "-l". As you can
Sorry about that. I was just going off of my memory which is clearly not correct!
see, it says fairly early on it recognises 2GB not 4. It's not exactly verbose about why. I also noticed later in the dmesg output that "[ 1.071359] [drm] Memory usable by graphics device = 2048M", that doesn't mean it's reserved, does it?
That's the drm driver. It just looks at the IO hole and thinks it can use it. It's not very appropriate or meaningful.
I don't know why your cbfs output is so verbose. I thought we squashed that verbosity.
Anyway, src/mainboard/samsung/lumpy/romstage.c shows you how it determines the spd contents to use. So my first question is, do you really have 4GiB of ram?
I'm not very familiar with this device. Are there 2 dimm slots? I'm thinking there might need to be some tweaking of the pei_data structure to ensure SPD contents are read off your actual dimms. Could you provide more info on your expected configuration?

Adding up the reported usable memory should jive with your expectations. As for needing console, yes, you will need to compile with console.

Guys, I have noticed that not all the 4 GB or RAM is showing, and I get this message in the kernel: [ 0.000000] Memory: 1914260k/4200448k available (6486k kernel code, 2160136k absent, 126052k reserved, 6780k data, 1412k init) Any idea what the problem is (mrc.bin), and what I might do to workaround?
