Description of Problem:
on our DELL server, 4 way, 4 GB RAM, kernel 2.4.9 does not boot with
mem=1024 M. mem=896 M works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot ;-)
it should boot ....
worked with kernel 2.4.9-6enterprise

The corresponding oops
Megaraid 1.18 has 1 known highmem bug; the "896M works 1024M doesn't" sort of
points in that direction. Does SAP have access to the beta site so I can send a
kernel with that bug fixed ?
NB: It worked flawlessly without any mem= option (using the full 4GB).
Apparently is fixed in current kernels, please close.
