Hi hackers at freebsd.org
A laptop here emits a puzzlingly dmesg to both 8.1-RC2 & 8.1-RELEASE:
real memory = 8572108800 (8175 MB)
avail memory = 1018789888 (971 MB)
BIOS reckons it has 1G. No panel to unscrew to inspect memory.
I don't beleive 8G.
If this is a bug in FreeBSD detect code ?
I am ready to run test kernel patches againt 8.1-RELEASE
& report back if anyone has code.
(I have room to install a current too if necessary)
Full dmesg here:
