* 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.
