Dear Brad,

Thanks, added.

By fixing the bugs in the "u-boot.lds" file.

Well, I have zero knowledge about the x86 stuff, but the "u-boot.lds"
file reads:

	. = 0x387c0000;		/* Where bootcode in the flash is mapped */
	. = 0x400000;		/* Ram data segment to use */

0x387c0000 - 0x400000 = 899.75 MB

I think I know why you get a 900 MG image, but I cannot give you  any
hints how to fix that.

Best regards,
