Default Reserving RAM on boot

Hi BSDers

Quick question: Is there an argument similar to this linux kernel one

Code:
reserve=0xFFB00000,0x100000
...which I can pass to OBSD on boot?

Thanks
John

The second stage bootloaders have a machine command which can add, exempt, or limit memory.

See the boot.conf(5) man page for your architecture.
