Hi Paulus,

My patch works again now that Mike's has been reverted =D ! Although I notice 
he's posted an updated version just now.

I've got to see what's going on with Maneesh's kernel (crashes in 
prom_memparse), and then I'll look at Mike's new patch. If Mike needs more 
time to get his NUMA changes sorted we could merge most of the mem=X code and 
leave the NUMA change until later (need to boot with numa=off), I'd like to 
test the NUMA change a bit more anyway.

I'm not getting much work done being sick, so it might take me a few days.
