Thank you ron for your opinions.
but here is a probem, if it's dram configuration that caused this,
why when I set and enabled the fixed range mtrr, data wasn't corrupted?
linuxbios ram part code runs in the 1MB memory range, so that's
exactly the fixed range mtrr covers. If enbaling fixed mtrr doesn't cause
data corruption, then it shouldn't be a dram configuration problem,
am I right?
