this patch makes OFW read the size of installed RAM from the LinuxBIOS

This nicely replaces my ugly hack. The only 2 qestions remaining are how a
loaded Linux kernel gets the memory info: via LB-Tables or OFW devtree?
Preferably both possible ways, I'd say. Weren't there patches on LKML ages
ago? And the other is about memory > 4GB: lb-memsize accepts 64-bit
It would probably be a good idea to make the root node and the memory
node have 2-cell addresses.
But good work nonetheless!
