Please tell me how you enable LPAE if you don't. I've truly curious.
Because otherwise, you should really take a step back and seriously
reconsider what you're writing. Hint: where do you think the page tables
required to enable LPAE will be? How do you even *boot*?

NAK.

At this stage, you've proven that you don't understand the problem at hand.
