    SubjectRe: [PATCH] x86: Allow MMCONFIG above 4GB on x86_64

    There's no reason at all to make this 64bit only. A PAE 32bit kernel
    can also access data above 4GB. So an ifdef is the wrong way.

    The reason the check is there is that there are lots of
    x86 BIOS that report wrong mmconfig and this way there's another
    sanity check.

    You'll need either to find a way to preserve this check
    on kernels not running on your system or show that the
    sanity check is not needed anymore. The later would
    be likely tricky.
