In northbridge/intel/sch/raminit.c, detect_softstrap_base()

reg32 = sch_port_access_read(4, 0x71, 2);
reg32 &= 0x700;
reg32 = reg32 >> 7;

Probably should read:
  reg32 &= 0x700;
  reg32 = reg32 >> 8;

or (not so likely)
  reg32 &= 0x380;
  reg32 = reg32 >> 7;

Otherwise it's pointless to test for 7 and 5. 

Makes me wonder how it has ever worked for anyone.
