I recent put some memory into my netbsd-current. I found that when the memory is greater than 64M, the system didn't report correctly.  the foillowing are the figures I tried to:-

1. 48M bios reports 48512KM  netbsd reports 49676288 (48512 * 1024)
2. 64M bios reports 65152KM  netbsd reports 66715648 (65152 * 1024)
3. 80M bios reports 81536KM  netbsd reports 67760128 (not equal to 81536 * 1024)

I had tried to configure the EXTMEM=(81536 * 1024) and re-make the kernel.  When the system re-started with new kernel, it go into db>.  Can anyone teach me how to solve this problem. I am sure someone had talked about that but I missed it. thank you in advance for your help.
