I don't think people will understand what generic64g means (think of
linux-generic, linux-server and linux-generic64g; what's 64g?). Sure,
they could read release notes or some how to, but naming it, for
example, generic-bigmem would be self explanatory (maybe even just
bigmem). Even linux-generic-pae would make more sense, since these days
even lots of Windows users do know that 'PAE makes all memory
 at first, I didn't make the connection between generic64g and 64GB
limit. I don't think it's wise to put limitations in the name of the
kernel-team mailing list
