Update of /cvsroot/src/sys/arch/i386/i386
In directory netbsd1:/var/slash-tmp/cvs-serv23280

Modified Files:
      Tag: thorpej-bus-dma
Log Message:
Some motherboards/BIOSes remap the 384k of RAM covered by the ISA
hole to the end of RAM so that it can be used.  However, on a 16M
system, this puts us "over the top", causing bounce buffers to be
allocated.  This is undesirable.  Detect this condition, and truncate
biosextmem (and print a warning to that effect) if we have ISA DMA
devices configured into the kernel.
