Yes, there is definitely a wraparound.  The other effects are pretty 
much indicated by the fact that his use of mem= is not safe across a 
hole (which he has at the top of 4G); this is why he should be using 
memmap= instead and why I haven't really bothered dealing with the mem= 
wraparound on Syslinux.
