SubjectRe: Questton about Zone Allocation 2.4.X

0-4GB is where I need to allocate, so allocating from highmem is not
a solution. I found the Ingo/Andrea patch for RH 8.0, but this patch
looks a little scary since it affects the memory allocations between
user and kernel space and the ratios alloted to these areas (I may
be missing something here -- as Dave M. puts it "Jeff you are such a pain
in the ass sometimes" :-).
