Probably some heuristic. When you add up all RAM reported by the BIOS you
get less than is really installed. Except on a Tyne which reports 256MB

The "Portable bootloader standard" contains some gossip about relocation.
Maybe they're talking about PIC. Too much to ignore it and not enough to
use it ...
