Yes, that's a known issue (see Thiemo's mail on this list today).

The kernel currently only recognizes 256MB.  A patch has recently been
committed to MIPS Linux CVS to fix this.

Thiemo is currently working on 2.6.10 packages and when they're ready
both of these issues should hopefully been fixed.  I've no idea how
long the module loading problem will take to fix, though.

That's not supported.  We need to add a warning to the
debian-installer HOWTO but so far nobody has done it.
