64GB max for the kernel, but userspace processes are still limited to a
4GB virtual address space.  Thus if one has an application, say a
database or medical imaging app (think MRI), that requires direct access
to say, 32GB of RAM, one should be using an x86-64 kernel and an
application compiled for an x86-64 target.
