All of this is not relevant.

Not yet supported, sorry.

Not yet supported, but this is usually easy to do.

This is good. As it's in a socket you can take it out and put a
backup-chip in there...

Depends on where the limitation comes from. If the proprietary BIOS
simply doesn't support more RAM, then maybe.

If your northbridge/chipset doesn't support more RAM (didn't check),
then you're out of luck -- no BIOS will help you in that case.

Yeah, well :) All LinuxBIOS problems usually boil down to:

 * Too few developers
 * Not enough time per day
 * Missing data sheets

(or combinations thereof)

That's great! We're looking forward to your patches!
