Look at /proc/iomem at add up the all entries of "System RAM". That
would give a good idea of total physical memory in the system.

I think /proc/meminfo does some filtering like removing reserved pages
while calulating total memory. So most likely it will not report 64MB
of memory reserved for dump kernel.
