The BIOS shadow is an old hack for MS-DOS. It isn't relevant
for Linux, or Windows. Dos software makes calls to the BIOS
to perform ordinary stuff like getting keyboard input and displaying
text to the screen. If this BIOS code is loaded into ram, the performance
is better. Modern Operating systems don't make BIOS calls, and don't
need this feature.
The memory hole reserves a megabyte of addresses in the middle
of your ram (that's why it's called a hole) for certain legacy hardware.
You probably don't want this either.
