That's a very good question ;-)

The 4 MiB limit only applies to early startup, in arch/m68k/kernel/head.S.
Initrd is accessed later, in arch/m68k/kernel/setup_mm.c, so I'd expect it to
not fall under the limit.

Of course, better try it to be sure ;-)

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
