I am looking for clarification about what and how  (Linux)BIOS should 
provide to kernel about memory size/memory regions.

I'm wondering about linuxbios table: there are lot of different 
variation with new_resource/ram_resource, where those calls are placed, 
what regions they are setting up, are those regions 0-TopOfSysRAM, or 
0-640/768-TopOfSysRAM etc. And reportedly it all works with linux kernel.
I'm not sure how to properly control linuxbios table content - and is 
this table mandatory for linux kernel?
