No, that would be lethal. All hardware registers can change without the
knowledge, so they are all considered volatile. All hardware registers must
non-cacheable and serialized to prevent terrible problems from arising.

Hmmm. Then that is very strange. I can't think of any other kind of ram that
might be allocated early, and then used later for DMA.

So, does that fix it then?

If it does, then it suggests HDDriver doesn't allow itself to be installed
in a row. Maybe it autodetects itself and bottles out if it is already

Now I am puzzled.
