Subject[PATCH] 1-2-3 GB
From

Patch to have 1-3 GB of virtual memory and not show up as highmem:

Tested on uniprocessor Athlon with 1024 MB RAM and 1027 MB swap.
Caused no LTP (ltp-20020108) regressions.
Did a test like http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=101064072924424&w=2
This time the test completed in 51 minutes (11% faster) and I had setiathome running
the whole time and listened to 12 mp3s sampled at 128k.

dmesg|grep Mem
Memory: 1029848k/1048512k available (1054k kernel code, 18276k reserved, 260k data, 240k init, 0k highmem)

egrep '^CONFIG_HIGH|GB' /usr/src/linux/.config
CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G=y
CONFIG_HIGHMEM=y
# CONFIG_1GB is not set
CONFIG_2GB=y
# CONFIG_3GB is not set
# CONFIG_05GB is not set
