Default OpenBSD i386 snapshot & PAE on VirtualBox

For which reason on the openbsd snapshot i386 is necessary enable the PAE?
Why this decision?
Using the openbsd 5 wasn't require.

PAE has been part of OpenBSD/i386 for many years. I am guessing a series of patches to PAE since 5.0 drive the requirement - in particular changes to i386 MMU processing for PMAP.


A presentation on PAE in OpenBSD/i386 from 2006: http://www.openbsd.org/papers/nyc2006/index.html

See pmap(9)
