Hmm. I think the idea is to show the (pseudo)bus address.
Let's assume that the 0xc shows up as 0x0.
What will happen with the extension memory at "physical" 0xd ?
And what will happen if i will recompile the kernel with
0xd starting addresses ?
The discontinuous physical memory makes the life difficult.
How do the mips NUMA machines deal with this problem ?
