I have a tiny question triggered in my mind after seeing following, sorry if
this was disccussed before;

config KVM
tristate "Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) support"
depends on X86 && EXPERIMENTAL
depends on X86_CMPXCHG64 || 64BIT

If i'm not wrong X86_CMPXCHG64 depends on CONFIG_X86_PAE which depends on
HIGHMEM64 and again if i'm not wrong this means distributions who wants to
provide KVM must enable CONFIG_X86_PAE and CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G from now on?

Is this intentional or this is here because of an assumption like "processors
supports virtualization already provides PAE", could you please enlighten me?

Cheers
