Smile BIOS-provided physical addresses map

i have a question relate to "BIOS-provided physical addresses map". Please help me.

The physical addresses map that is built by BIOS is only for RAM or all of peripheral and RAM?

For Ex:
Start End Type
0x00000000 0x0009ffff Usable
0x000f0000 0x000fffff Reserved
0x00100000 0x07feffff Usable
0x07ff0000 0x07ff2fff ACPI data
0x07ff3000 0x07ffffff ACPI NVS
0xffff0000 0xffffffff Reserved

Thank you so much!

The int 0x15 eax=0xE820 call is the bios function which linux prefers when detecting memory, and it only returns a map of ram. I'm not certain about any of the other memory-detection bios routines.
