The latest good changeset for x86_32 (PAE) should be 6124 according to the build report of August 12.

On machines with <4GB (and no memory mapped above 4GB) PAE is believed
stable (after some checkins today).
I have verified on one machine, SLES 9 SP2 based, that previously crashed on boot, and it has booted just fine. Creating a domU crashes dom0, however, unless dom0 is booted with swiotlb=force as a kernel parameter. This machine has 1GB of memory, SCSI (Adaptec), and Intel Gigabit Ethernet card 82547GI.

The funs starts when >4GB is used. We're still not quite there yet, but
getting close.

It would be goos if the daily reports said how much memory each machine
has, and what hardware e.g. 4GB DMA capable or not [SATA/IDE controllers
are probably the biggest offenders here.]
