This one has 2x512MB, with half above the 4GiB limit. This means it needs
LPAE to address high physical addresses (which is fine), but it does not need
highmem if one uses an appropriate CONFIG_VMSPLIT_* option.

Both iWave and Emtrion only seem to list boards with 2GB or less on their
websites today (with up to 15 year availability). My guess is that they had
the same problem as everyone else in finding the right memory chips in
the required quantities and/or long-term availability. iWave lists "By default
1GB DDR3 and 4GB eMMC only supported. Contact iWave for memory
expansion support." on some boards, but that doesn't mean they ever
shipped a 4GB configuration.
