Indeed. I knew it was somewhere, but couldn't find it. No wonder the author of
the original question couldn't!

We did once, but it was taken out because so many people set it to 64Mb and
wondered why it stopped working. However, if we do something like...

bool 'Support for over 1Gb of physical memory' CONFIG_BIGRAM
if [ "$CONFIG_BIGRAM" != n ]; then
int 'Maximum memory size (read Documentation/i386/bigram.txt)' CONFIG_MEMSIZE

then that's much less likely to happen.
