    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
