We need to limit rmo_top to 0x07c00000 on PS3. Sony's version of kexec-tools, at
 has the attached patch. (There are a couple of other alignment-related patches
in there too), which may warrant investigation).

Shouldn't the running kernel export this information directly, instead of making
us guess? Surely _it_ knows?

Sony patch for rmo_top.
Comment 2 Neil Horman 2007-04-10 11:12:05 EDT
fixed in -66.fc7.  Thanks!

Since we've ripped out the platform determination code (since its not overly
reliable), I'm just going to reduce the max rmo_top value to 0x7c000000UL for
now.  Being rawhide, If that has any adverse affects on anything else, we'll
catch it early and be able to come up with something better.
