/distribution/kernelinstall installs non-PAE kernel on machine with >4G RAM

Description of problem:
This is found from https://beaker.engineering.redhat.com/recipes/605021
<task name="/distribution/kernelinstall" role="STANDALONE">
<param name="KERNELARGNAME" value="kernel"/>
<param name="KERNELARGVERSION" value="2.6.18-338.el5"/>
<param name="KERNELARGVARIANT" value="up"/>
IIRC, "up" can determine PAE or not automatically. This recipe initially installed a PAE kernel since the box has more than 4G RAM, but kernelinstall testcase installed a non-PAE kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
<4G, install non-PAE kernel
>4G, install PAE kernel
oh, 'up' is supposed to mean non-PAE kernel while 'PAE' is PAE kernel. I don't know much about the history. Sorry for the noise.
