Don't upgrade *user* land. User land doesn't use the braindamage that is PAE.

Just run a 64-bit kernel. Keep all your 32-bit userland apps and libraries.

Trust me, that *will* be faster. PAE works really horribly badly,
because all your really important data structures like your inodes and
directory cache will all be in the low 1GB even if you have 16BG of

Of course, I'd also like more people to run things that way just to
get more coverage of the whole "yes, we do all the compat stuff
correctly". So I have some other reasons to prefer people running
64-bit kernels with 32-bit user land. But PAE really is a disaster.
