I liked this one better before.  Here it really means there is 4 GB of RAM.
The "hole at 0x0" part is not helpful.

> Handling memory hole at 0x00300000 (default)
> RAM end at 0x00500000 kB, hole starts at 0x00300000 kB
Here the new message makes sense.  Do we need to print out the hole start

> I hope this helps understand my patch better.
Yes.  There's nothing like the real output for succinctness.
