I suppose people who wants to use more than 4GB of RAM (and all the
other x64 benefits) should just use 64bit altogether...
Indeed, if you have > 4G of physical address space to handle you
certainly want a 64bit kernel these days.
The only reason for keeping PAE for 32bit kernels would be NX support
(which requires 64bit page table entries so it works in PAE mode only).
