    using cache as standard memory


      Can the cache on the core I7 or Xeon 5500 be used as standard memory?  Possibly this is an artifact of being in non-segmented, non-protected, non-paged mode and not having any external memory?  Is this a designed condition which can be exploited?  Is this a condition which has gone through any testing or verification?
