I did some more digging around this weekend to figure out why enabling LPAE on the 3.11-rcNN chromebook crashed.  I found that the virtualopensystms kernel had the following patch:


Applying this patch to the 3.11-rcNN kernel allow building a kernel with LPAE and KVM enabled.

It seems there's a different patchset going upstream


And I think this is the entire patchset here
