MX53 is capable of addressing up to 1GB of RAM.

Select CONFIG_HIGHMEM so that the full 1GB can be detected by the kernel.
and we avoid getting the following message:

Ignoring RAM at b0000000-cfffffff (vmalloc region overlap)

As suggested by Russel I enabled HIGHMEM so that we can get the whole 
1GB available on MX53.

I don't have my hardware handy right now to test it, but I am sending you this patch 
so that you can select this one or the previous that selects CONFIG_VMSPLIT_2G.
