I did what you said. The patch was applied correctly. I built the romimage
and burnt it the same way I did it before and it did turn the VGA on, true,
but never ran linux, just infinite loop inside linuxbios...
Here are the last messages I've got before it went to the restart.
Copying IRQ routing tables to 0xf0000...done.
Verifing priq routing tables copy at 0xf0000...failed
Wrote linuxbios table at: 00000500 - 00000650  checksum 9ac4
