Thanks for the patch.  It'd be interesting if it was done portably.  The
coreboot (aka LinuxBIOS) target also uses this code, and the memory map is
obtained differently there (see kern/i386/linuxbios/init.c).

At least, it could be #ifdef'ed, although it'd be nice to have something
more ellegant (e.g. an isolated, generic function to probe for memory map
arch-dependantly that arch-independant code can use).
