Again, it's not just the ADB.  The current CI kernel does run on the
SI, but it simply won't fit in the 1M hardwired RAM Bank A.  Someone is
going to have to dig into the initial memory mapping code in locore.s
and fix the code so it correctly maps discontiguous memory ranges as a
flat space and account for the video memory.  Once that is done, I'm
certain the rest of the system will arrive shortly.

 I think "make love, not war" is probably too extreme.  I think the sentiment
	might be better phrased, "make grudging tolerance, not war."
