The 4GB Address Space thing is one of the topics proposed as thesis at my
university. They need it for Virtual Machines or something. 

I have to do one and thought this might be quite interesting. I have some
experience with kernel programming but not with Linux - and I don't know
much about Linux internals as yet.

So what I need to know is whether those modifications are rather
comprehensive/complicated or not and whether it is feasible to get finished
within 4 month...
