[opensuse-factory] memtest86+ fubar? from grub -> reboot; from CD/DVD -> OK
(instigated from https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=801561 )
# dmesg | grep e820

Intel B85 Express motherboard:

memtest 4.20 works from Grub. 5.01 from Grub triggers instant reboot, no
matter where I got 5.01 from (i586 TW, x86_64 TW & Leap, Mageia, Fedora, all
reporting 5.01, but significantly varying binary sizes: 150024-190896). 4.20
doesn't recognize or report CPU or RAM configuration correctly, but does test
to pass completion, with one error in test #9. 5.01 from
http://www.memtest.org/ iso burned to CD works, but I'm not sure correctly.
On 4 of 5 passes memtest found error in test #9. Memtest reports RAM running
at 667HHz (rather than 800MHz) is CAS 9-9-9-24, while both specs and
motherboard setup report RAM is CAS 11-11-11-28. Motherboard reports RAM
voltage below 1.35 spec. I have yet to figure out how to raise voltage in
motherboard setup.

Is it possible to get any memtest newer than 4.20 to start on Haswell other
than from removable media boot, or have it report performance near
specifications or expectations? Suggestions welcome.
