Just do (4): disable PTI with PAE.

Then we can try to make people perhaps not use !PAE very much, and
warn if you have PAE disabled on a machine that supports it.

As you say, there shouldn't be much of a performance impact from PAE.
There is a more noticeable performance impact from HIGHMEM, not from
HIGHMEM_64G, iirc.
