Hi kernel experts,

I vaguely remember that there is a pending patch where the kernel
is using a memcopy-style function residing in memory that already
got "freed" at that moment during boot, so I guess the gurus are
awake at the moment...

QUESTION: Would it be possible to improve UMB handling such that
the kernel supports SEVERAL providers of UMB at the same time, for
example UMBPCI for hardware-UMB and in addition EMM386 to "map" a
few more UMB to areas where normally a memory gap would be, such
as the "monochrome video memory" area?

Might be interesting to have even more UMB flexibility :-)

Regards, Eric
