[U-Boot-Users] How can I reserve memory for LCD framebuffer on ARM-based board?

I'm working on support for LCD framebuffer on S3C24[14]0 ARM-based SoCs in  
u-boot. I faced the problem that existing code in lib_arm/board.c uses memory  
just behind .bss for framebuffer and don't even tries to ensure that there are  
enough memory (yes, my hardware uses system memory for framebuffer).  
What can I do to reserve enough memory? Should I somehow relocate .bss (and 
code)? or should I reserve memory under u-boot code? (that is what lcd_setmem() 
expects as far as I can understand) 
Thanks in advance,
