Eeek.  Is there a BIOS upgrade for your machine?  If so, you might
consider trying it out, and not using this patch.

The memory map that NetBSD uses is the ACPI memory map, which would
be the same one that Win2k uses.  Check to see if a BIOS upgrade is
required to run Win2k on your system, for example.
