Not Odd at all. 

*0386 (and in fact AT's) use the address space from 640-1MEG as the space
for various ROMS for VGA , HD CONTROLLERS and the like.

As far as I know , there is NO way to get it into useful space.

You might as well shadow and get the speed.

ALL the UNIX systems I have installed have this problem.

  So Lord, I'd think you more than wise, (and me much less a jerk) 
  if only once you might supply.....
