    If the Unix vendors would just start allocating memory from the top so that
    the disk buffers and kernel would end up in 16 bit memory, things would work
    much better.  Seems like a simple change - how about it Interactive?

I have not tried, but it may well be that by opportune tweaking of the
memory range line in /etc/default/boot one could achieve this.

If, as might well be, the kernel looks at memory in the same order as the
ranges are given in the memory ranges line, that is.
