Memorymap issue in powerpc:can't allocate more than 256MB for DRAM

Hi all

I have an mpc8360e processor (has e300 core and QE) for our networking application. I have to use 1GB DRAM module in my board, but u-boot for powerpc is not supporting that. It is supporting only 256MB DRAM module.

And in kernel, /proc/meminfo gives me only 256MB.

Is it a processor limitation? Is there any other way to do memory map, than address translation method?

Please help me out to solve this

Regards
