Stephen Warren - Oct. 19, 2012, 4:51 a.m.
The firmware running on the bcm2835 SoC's VideoCore CPU determines how
much of the system RAM is available for use by the ARM CPU. Previously,
U-Boot assumed that only 128MB was available, since this was the
smallest value configured by any public firmware. However, we can now
query the actual value at run-time from the firmware using the mbox
property protocol.

v2: Updated to use macros etc. added in v2 of mbox driver patch.
