This nicely replaces my ugly hack. The only  2 qestions remaining are how a 
loaded Linux kernel gets the memory info: via LB-Tables or OFW devtree? 
Preferably both possible ways, I'd say. Weren't there patches on LKML ages 
ago? And the other is about memory > 4GB: lb-memsize accepts 64-bit 

But good work nonetheless!
