This shouldn't be needed for 4G of ram.  That would be needed for >4G
of ram.  But at 4G I think everything should be okay.

Do you have enough swap space configured to save a 4G memory image?
If it works with 2G then I suspect that it is failing with 4G because
there isn't enough swap to save the image.

To get to 4G all that is needed is CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G=y and that is the
default in stock Debian kernels.

Or use apt:

  apt-cache search linux-image bigmem
