This is because the M-Systems firmware takes up a large chunk of your system 
RAM for caching block attributes - this is proportional to the size of the 
DiskOnChip, naturally.

The code I'm currently hacking into Grub will drive the DiskOnChip directly, so
you can remove the M-Systems firmware. My Grub code doesn't do any caching - so
it'll be a tad slower, but it'll work on bigger devices.
