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.
I disagree actually. It is not an invalid point, but please optimize for the common case and let's deal with microscopic corner cases if they actually happen.
Could SeaBIOS fail more cleanly when it detects insufficient RAM?
What would you propose?
