'protect4gb' boot parameter was introduced to avoid allocating dma
space acrossing 4GB boundary in 2007 (the commit
569975591c5530fdc9c7a3c45122e5e46f075a74).

In 2008, the IOMMU was fixed to use the boundary_mask parameter per
device properly. So 'protect4gb' workaround was removed (the
383af9525bb27f927511874f6306247ec13f1c28). But somehow I messed the
'protect4gb' boot parameter that was used to enable the
workaround.
