That is interesting, but it seems to be the way Linux works. On my
64-bit desktop PC:
Memory: 3984968k/4915200k available (4297k kernel code, 788868k absent,
140500k reserved, 2391k data, 396k init)
Not quite sure what all the reserved stuff is for (best I could find
from Google was DMA transfers and things) but it's still quite a sizable
about of memory - all up just over 200MB "missing" for me, and I only
have 4GB total!
