We don't even have HIGHMEM enabled, again not even for x86. HUGEPAGEs
(transparent) are actually enabled, but I'm not entirely sure if we do
have users for them in reality(although I could see we would), I can
poke my friendly meego kernel maintainer if you'd really want to know
The biggest database we have on MeeGo installs is the rpm database....
Does that answer that part?
