Thank you also very much for that information, Roger! The warm boot bit
seems to be the lowest bit in that register - TOS 3.06 actually writes
a 0x01 into the register during boot.

Actually, we even already have this code since quite a while in
stMemory.c of Hatari:

 /* On TT, set bit0=1 at $ff8e09 to simulate a warm start */
 /* (else memory detection is not skipped after a cold start/reset) */
 if (Config_IsMachineTT())
	STMemory_WriteByte ( 0xff8e09, IoMem_ReadByte(0xff8e09) | 0x01 );

I must have been really blind yesterday that I did not spot this
earlier... :-/
