There are boards available now that have 2GB of RAM, meaning that the RAM extends from 0x00000000 to 0x3fffffff which is a quarter of the 32-bit address space.

As Eric kindly pointed out to me, my math is out by a factor of 2 - 2GB of RAM would extend from 0x00000000 to 0x7fffffff. This merely makes my case for a devLib A32 malloc() API even more urgent...
