request_mem_region kernel function and 15-16M memory hole

Hi All,

I need to access the memory at 15-16M for an ISA board driver.

Enabled the memory hole in BIOS setup, the kernel mark the memory address range 00f00000-00ffffff as <reserved> and the request_mem_region function call in my kernel module fails.

How can I do that?

Best regards.
