Don't use slram. Use mtdram.

mtdram uses vmalloc() to allocate a chunk of memory. slram just tries to 
use it, and you have to boot your kernel with a 'mem=' option telling it 
not to use all the physical memory it finds. I think the default for slram 
is to use 64Mb at 64Mb - so you'd need to boot with 'mem=64M'.
