It's 128MB, right? How unrealistic is that these days?

All the ARMv4T chips I checked (at91rm9200, imx1, ep73xx, ep93xx,
ks8695, omap1510 and s3c24xx) with the exception of the s3c2443
(which we barely support) only support SDRAM, not DDR, so they
are already limited to 64MB (512Mbit) per memory chip, and typically
256MB as the absolute maximum on a 32-bit interface with four x8
chips.
