Wow, tough crowd on this list...

Pursuant to my previous email, I placed grub_printf() statements at 
approximately line #351 and #606 in the file loader/i386/efi/linux.c. 
That would be where grub_rescue_cmd_linux() and 
grub_rescue_cmd_initrd() get their ideas about what initrd_addr_max 
should be.

In both cases, 0x1fffffff is returned, which is a value carved into the 
kernel header of my vmlinuz file. So Grub2 is doing its job, and it 
seems there's some conflict between where initrd memory is on my Core 2 
Duo MacMini (@ around 1gb), and where the Debian AMD64 
vmlinuz-2.6.21-2-686 kernel is saying it can't be found above.

I don't have any experience compiling the kernel as I've not so far had 
a reason to. :-)

Is initrd_addr_max a configurable piece of the kernel? Again, not 
really sure right now where to take this info...

Best, Charles
