Yeah. I'm currently using 2.6.15. Note that I'm using the
amd64-generic kernel, not the amd64-k8 kernel. I don't expect that
makes any difference at all with respect to this particular bug,
though it might change how much memory is visible.
One other thing: I'm using ECC memory, and have ECC enabled.
