As described in the documentation and the config file, I cannot build
kernel modules with PAE configured - I get a compile error at type
mismatch of a VM item. Is there something special that needs to be
done to get them built?

What I did: removed NO_MODULES from PAE config file and used make
buildkernel KERNCONF=PAE .
