I am building a shiny new desktop, the only thing I don't have right
now is the hard drive, so
I have been booting a minimal system off a flash drive. The box has
two gigs of ram. if I try to create a malloc backed md device bigger
then 300mb(this is not the exact limit but it is between 300mb and
400mb) it fails. If I use -o reserve the mdconfig command fails and if
I don't then when I try and use that space FreeBSD crashes. It seems
like there should be enough unused memory to create a 1gb malloc
backed md.

I have no swap because the only drive is a flash drive.
/ is  mounted read only.
/tmp and /var are 124mb malloc backed md devices

What is the deal? Is this some tunable limit? Should I fire up memtest?
