Imho this is OK, and easiest.

Here are some other ideas, might not work if stack is never realocated. I dont 
know how CAR in v3 works.

4. use 0xA0000-0xBFFFF

I think we can use this RAM because it will be covered by SMM (done by us) or 
will be covered by legacy VGA anyway.

5.  use 0xf0000-0xfffff

It will get overwritten by some our code, before that we might use it.
