Default Re: P35/7.0 Beta Issues

Here's a first pass:

For the 4GB configuration:
The initial boot message is that 524MB of memory above 4GB is discarded.
Code:
% dmesg | grep mem
real memory  = 3756916736 (3582 MB)
avail memory = 3664588800 (3494 MB)

The 2GB case:

%dmesg | grep mem
real memory  = 2146304000 (2046 MB)
avail memory = 2082365440 (1985 MB)
acpi_hpet0: <High Precision Event Timer> iomem 0xfed00000-0xfed003ff on acpi0

pciconf is the same.

There are some IRQ conflicts, but removing the devices that conflict with the video card makes no difference in the 4GB case.

Please let me know what else you would like.
