    Kernel relocation


    I need move the Linux kernel to high memory adresses. I'm using the CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START to define memory shift. ButI met the following issue: when value of this define is 0.5GB or less, the system is working OK. When shift is 1GB and more, system is not booted. Anyone can help?
    P.S. System memory is 2 GB.

    I made some changes in .config file before kernel build.
    CONFIG_PHYSICAL_START defines the start address of kernel.
    CONFIG_VMSPLIT_2G=y defines virtual addresses generation.
