KVM supports more than 2GB of memory for x86_64 hosts.  The following patch
fixes a number of type related issues where int's were being used when they
shouldn't have been.  It also introduces CMOS support so the BIOS can build
the appropriate e820 tables.

again, you need patch the bios for this, as the bochs bios doesnt know
how to map memory above 4 giga, and it doesnt know about this CMOS
addresses, (look at the patch that i sent)

Right, but the important point is, that in the absence of the bochs BIOS, this patch does no harm.
