Description Prarit Bhargava 2006-06-14 19:01:00 EDT
Description of problem:

It's time that we make the switch.  According to upstream reports SPARSEMEM will
eventually replace DISCONTIG.  However, testing of platforms has become a 
blocker for this... let's switch Fedora over and see what happens.  

I've tested on various x86_64 platforms (a couple of Dells, a few HPs, an IBM
box) and haven't seen any issues.
