What about backward compatibility ? If I understand the PAE help text
correctly, a PAE enabled kernel will not boot on a processor which
doesn't support PAE, like my Crusoe:

processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineTMx86
cpu family : 6
model : 4
model name : Transmeta(tm) Crusoe(tm) Processor TM5600
stepping : 3
cpu MHz : 595.597
cache size : 512 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 1
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr cx8 cmov mmx longrun
bogomips : 1167.36
