Linux BadRAM Patch


The objective of theBadRAM Patchis to run the Linux kernel in such a way that itcan handle defective RAM modules. With defective RAM, I mean RAMwhich has some bits wrong at some (known) addresses. Normally, suchRAM is considered useless and thrown away; the larger RAMs get, thehigher the chances of failing addresses. With ever growing RAM sizes,it would therefore be pleasant to have an alternative to discardingof defective RAM chips.
