Right, but it can't be less than 32, can it? And if it is more than 32
bits, then it probably doesn't really matter on 32-bit. Unless it is
less than 36 bits and you do PAE...
I'll try to build and run a 32-bit kernel and see how this all flows.
Yeah, that would be good.
Ok, finally got around to running a 32-bit kernel and it reports
x86_phys_bits as 48.
