Bug#652448: panic when booting on a machine with >= 4 GiB of RAM

clone 652448 -1
severity -1 wishlist
retitle -1 PAE support

Hi Arno,

I'm sorry, this is my fault but when I read your reply I notice I
actually lumped together two different issues:

#1- An important usability bug: kernel panics instead of just
discarding unusable RAM.

#2- Lack of PAE feature which would allow using all the available RAM
instead of discarding some.

I'm cloning this bug so we can have separate discussion about the
benefits of enabling PAE without cluttering the panic bug with
irrelevant information.
