Not in this case, unfortunately.

OK, I'll try but I'm still interested in the general issue.

OK, great. One thing I don't see in that page is how to get size and
address values from memtest86 output. Must they be obtained with some
special memtest86 parameter, or recalculated from some other data?
Also, is it possible to pass that option multiple times:

memmap=size1$address1, memmap=size2$address2
