kcore and a live persistent linux usb distro

I have 2 computers, from now on i shall call these computers A and B.

Made a live linux distro (bodhi) on A which has 1GB internal memory , because windows is unstable on B, which has 512MB internal memory.

I mean with memory the internal memory of the computer, not the memory of the usb stick!

When i take this live usb distro out of A and put it into B and started it up, i noticed the following: /proc/kcore is 1016MB.

The question is:
Can this lead to problems when linux "thinks" i have 1016MB of internal memory when this is in fact 512MB?

And is more information extracted from computer A, like info from the graphics card, etc?

Thanx in advance.

SND_UAUDIO(4)						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 					     SND_UAUDIO(4)

NAME
snd_uaudio -- USB audio device driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device sound device usb device snd_uaudio Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): snd_uaudio_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The snd_uaudio driver provides support for USB audio class devices. A USB audio device consists of a number of components: input terminals (e.g. USB digital input), output terminals (e.g. speakers), and a num- ber of units in between (e.g. volume control). Refer to the 'USB Audio Class Specification' for more information. SEE ALSO
sound(4), usb(4) USB Audio Class Specifications, http://www.usb.org/developers/devclass_docs/. HISTORY
The snd_uaudio driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.7. AUTHORS
This manual page was adopted from NetBSD 1.6 and modified for FreeBSD by Hiten Pandya <hmp@FreeBSD.org>. BUGS
The PCM framework in FreeBSD, as of this writing, does not handle device un-registrations in a properly abstracted manner, i.e., a detach request is refused by the PCM framework if the device is in use. For USB and supposedly other detach-able busses, it is necessary to allow the device un-registration to complete successfully, otherwise the driver leaves wild pointers to invalid data structures and thus leading to a panic.
