That's pretty interesting, and probably very critical info. Thanks for
trying that.

What it means to me is that either SILO or the kernel (likely SILO)
isn't coping well with the physical memory being located high up when it
comes to the initrd. I'll move some sticks around in my U5 and see if I
can reproduce this bug now. I could never reproduce it before.
