    Still I think this brain-damage has already been implemented somewhere...
    maybe even at the brain-damage center at redmond ;)
    ... and it definitely was implemented for 32-bit memory addressing on 16-bit cpus ;)

    Even another question: What are the current memory limits for x86 Linux (2.2.x) ?
    (ram, swap, address space?)
    ... pointers to information about the kazillion resource limits and
    extending/circumventing/wotever them would be appreciated too ;)
