* The BIOS places the EBDA/XBDA at the top of conventional
* memory, and usually decreases the reported amount of
* conventional memory (int 0x12) too. This also contains a
* workaround for Dell systems that neglect to reserve EBDA.
* The same workaround also avoids a problem with the AMD768MPX
* chipset: reserve a page before VGA to prevent PCI prefetch
* into it (errata #56). Usually the page is reserved anyways,
* unless you have no PS/2 mouse plugged in.
* This functions is deliberately very conservative. Losing
* memory in the bottom megabyte is rarely a problem, as long
* as we have enough memory to install the trampoline. Using
* memory that is in use by the BIOS or by some DMA device
* the BIOS didn't shut down *is* a big problem.

* To determine the position of the EBDA and the
* end of conventional memory, we need to look at
* the BIOS data area. In a paravirtual environment
* that area is absent. We'll just have to assume
* that the paravirt case can handle memory setup
* correctly, without our help.
