Admittedly a silly thing to try. I don't really expect SeaBIOS to work with 16KiB of RAM. But I'm curious: how much does it require?
SeaBIOS requires a minimum of 1Meg of ram. I didn't even know one could request less than 1meg of ram from QEMU.
I'll cook up a QEMU patch to give it at least that much.
But QEMU may use other firmware/payload than SeaBIOS which might require less than 1 MB of RAM.
Could SeaBIOS fail more cleanly when it detects insufficient RAM?
