Be careful with the firmware.  On Sibyte systems Linux queries the firmware
for available memory ranges.  The memory ranges are based on the sizes of
the sizes of the ELF file as loaded.  That means after decompression it
is possible that the kernel will treat some memory as free even though it
it is actually used.  Due to various other circumstances this does not
actually hit all systems.
