Thanks for the advice of removing movablecore/kernelcore. But since we
didn't plan to do this in the beginning, and movablecore/kernelcore are
more user friendly, I think for now, I'll handle DMA and low memory
address problems as you mentioned, and just keep movablecore/kernelcore
in the next version. :)

And about the SRAT, I think it is necessary to many users. I think we
should provide both interfaces. I may give a try in the next version.

Thanks. :)
