Yes, I now. But most repair tools don't benefit from heaps of memory nor
from the extra registers in any detectable manner: they're I/O bound. Even
fsck doesn't benefit enormously: if you've got an fs big enough to need
>4Gb RAM, you pretty much have to be using ext4, where fsck uses much less
memory anyway because of flexbg (IIRC).
