I'm currently discussing this with H. Peter Anvin (the x86 boot code
maintainer) by private email and have done some testing with him using
the syslinux "meminfo.c32" plugin.
Latest comment from him is:
# Right... you have a system dependent on E801, and somehow E801 returns crap.
# I'm going to cook up a modified meminfo.c32 for you and see if we can't
# track this down.
So something that happened around 2.6.23/2.6.24 broke the way that the
kernel was handling this corner case (maybe in the 32/64 bit merge) and
stopped it working.
I'll report more when there is something definite from the new version
that he's working on.
