Default Re: >=3G installed crashes X server due to simplistic PCI allocation by kernel

I think the kernel developers are aware of this issue and they want to avoid putting hacks that are specific to a certain buggy BIOS into the mainstream kernel, because it might affect other systems that worked OK without the hack.
This whole issue is only very temporary, because not only people are using more than 2GB memory these days, but they are also getting 64-bit capable processors and install 64-bit versions of Linux. That solves the issue.
