I see some people claiming (see links) they have a memory splitting of
gpu_mem=8, but I always thought 16/496 is the minimum split?

I tried setting it to
gpu_mem=8 on my Pi, it boots just fine, but running
vcgencmd get_mem arm vcgencmd get_mem gpu
So on any value below 16 the Pi seems to default to 16. Is there any benefit/drawback when using
gpu_mem=8 or is there a way to really get to 8/504?
