Don't worry about these for now.  It's a known problem and on my todo
list (once the book is finished...).

The warnings are due to the fact that setup_arch() is not yet
registering the reserved memory regions (search for "XXX fix me" in
that routine and you'll see what I mean).  Given the EFI memory map,
this will be easy to fix---just a small matter of programming.  In the
meantime, it shouldn't have any negative effect (hotplugging with dumb
buses such as PCMCIA would be a problem, but since ISA isn't supported
anyhow...).
