Cool! I've been wanting to dig mine out for a while now, but other priorities keep getting in the way. I've been pushing my beloved Dockstar too hard and I'm tired of the OOM killer kicking in, so it would be nice to have 2GB of RAM. :-)

Let me know if I can help in any way.

The bad news is similar HighMem errors still exist in the latest kernel (5.2.8). It happens less often than in previous kernel version, though. Similar problem has been reported to mainline last year, but looks like the devs don't like to spend much time on ARMV5 (armel) anymore.

The Kirkwood kernel we have will run this M300 box with 768K RAM. So if anybody is having OOM running Dockstar or other Kirkwood plugs, perhaps you should start using this box with 768K for now.

I think I will need to build a different kernel for this box. Not giving up yet :)
