Could you please merge this one in for 2.6.26. Without it the
system boots with just 128 of the total 256 MiB of memory.
There is the concurrency problem as Ben commented on, but I
think not having the 128 MiB of memory is worse than having the
potential race, which we can work on as a separate fix.
