New SILO (was Re: [SOLVED] Take 3: sparc64 CDs work?)

I did some checking, and the newer memory allocation in SILO was not
verifying that the initrd physical location was in the lower 32-bits
address range. The kernel only accepts a 32-bit address range for
initrd's. I re-added the check, so now SILO will put out a decent

I suspect that in the long run, I really need to make it so that the
initrd gets lower memory precendence over the kernel. The kernel itself
can be loaded anywhere for sparc64, even in 64-bit address ranges.

But for now, I am about to release SILO 1.4.6 to atleast make this less
of a mystery on systems where it fails.
