PAE is unstable for me with 8GB of RAM.
Also, device arcmsr does not compile with PAE.
The test is to loop on "make buildworld;make clean". The system seems
to reboot within an hour or so.
Testbed is a Tyan K8W S2885 with two Opteron 246 CPUs (but no SMP
kernel) and 8 GB of RAM. Disk controller is the onboard serial-ATA
controller. NIC is an Intel em(3) PCI-X card.
The hardware seems to work fine with the amd64 port. It does the same
test loop for at least a day without incident.
5.4 RC2 was installed from a CD with "config PAE" using the shipped PAE
file with a line "nodevice arcmsr" added at the end.
