SubjectRe: [PATCH] Clarify i386/Kconfig explanation of the HIGHMEM config options
> +	  1 Gigabyte or more total physical RAM, answer "off" here.

I don't think your proposed wording (1 gigabyte or more) versus (more
than 1 gigabyte) doesn't really change the sense of this.

If we want to be even more explicit about this, then if the CPU level
selected by the user is greater than Pentium-M (or whatever is was the
oldest CPU that didn't have NX support --- Arjan?) we shouldn't offer
this choice at all, and force CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G. We can give the user
a choice if CONFIG_EMBEDDED is enabled, but otherwise, if the CPU
level is new enough, I think we can safely make the argument that for
nearly all systems, they have enough memory and speed that perhaps we
should just simply always use HIGHMEM64G.
