I merged PAE into my version of -current a bit at a time and didn't
notice any problems (with PAE not actually configured) despite having
some large logical inconsistencies from not having all of it.  Most
of the global changes had no effect since they just changed the names
of some typedefs without changing the underlying types in the !PAE
case.  So I suspect that any instabilities in RELENG_4 in the !PAE
case are indirectly related to PAE and/or localized and thus easy to
find and fix.
