    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Always use 64 bit addresses for the firmware memory map

    Well, I think that interface should export the BIOS memmap as provided.
    Since E820 does provide 64 bit addresses, that should get exported.

    It should even possible to kexec a PAE kernel from a non PAE kernel ...
    I didn't test, but it could work. But only if the E820 map is correctly
    written in the zero page, which is only the case if we get it correctly.


    Regards,
