Ok, one thing is you can change this:
#define FRAMEBUFFERK 4096

src/northbridge/amd/gx1/northbridge.c. But this will do nothing but gain
you the 4 Megabytes of RAM that are normally reserved for the onchip vga
(which you dont use anyways)

good question. Anyone?

Because its not needed. We dont do DMI but we have a mechanism called
the "LinuxBIOS table"

... Ok. other attempt.

Boot up with LinuxBIOS and boot up with factory bios, and do 

lspci -xxx  > pcioutput.txt

as root.
Then send the two files to this list.
