That seems like a bug, and if so this patch goes the wrong direction.
(If the 32-bit code has another solution for the same problem, they
should be unified.)

The trimming of uncachable memory affects both 32- and 64-bit kernels;
it's the same hardware, and even 32-bit kernels (with PAE) can access
memory above 4 GB.
