Yes thats me ;) I have nick Ruik but using Rudolf as for emails. Please note 
that windows dislike to be reserved memory "a000 and above" leave the hole 
there. In other words leave it as it is ;)

Also if you will move the coreboot to some higher location keep in mind that 
windows/ACPI needs first 8MB without any reserved memory. As we discussed on IRC 
best would be to move the coreboot to some TOPMEM-VGAMEM-something And then use 
the backup approach for first 1MB.

I recall someone had the "poison memory patch" to observe what memory was 
touched by coreboot? Uwe? Carldani?
