Strange.  I thought that was fixed.

The HIGH_TABLES failed with:

  No matching ram area found for range:
    [0x00000000000f0000, 0x0000000000100000)
  Ram areas
    [0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000001000) Reserved
    [0x0000000000001000, 0x00000000000a0000) RAM
    [0x0000000000100000, 0x000000000fff0000) RAM
    [0x000000000fff0000, 0x0000000010000000) Reserved
  Boot failed.

This looks like a separate issue from HIGH_TABLES support.  It looks like
the payload wasn't finding RAM to live in.  Did you try SeaBIOS as a payload
without HIGH_TABLES support?

I think it would be nice if there were some easy way to see that 768K =
0xC0000 here, but I'm not sure of the best way to express that.  Maybe just
a comment.
