Very nice! I think that especially the raminit.c parts are a step
forward. Maybe this also fixes the RAM bank population issues some of us

Unfortunately, I don't have any K8 platform which suppports LB to check,
my only systems running LB are all Geode GX (to be exact, all of them
are OLPC prototypes at various stages in development).
