Kernel32: 3GB UserSpace boot option

compiling binaries with the LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE flag set is not enough to
be able to use more than 2GB user space.
To behave like WindowsXP booted with the /3GB option, at least the
lpMaximumApplicationAddress in GetSystemInfo has to be changed to
0xBFFEFFFF and the virtual user space has to be reserved in mmap_init in
mmap.c up to that address.
See Windows memory management:
I am quite sure that my proposed hack is not complete to behave like the
/3GB option, but as stated in cpu.c
384 /* FIXME: the two entries below should be computed somehow... */
385 cachedsi.lpMinimumApplicationAddress = (void *)0x00010000;
386 cachedsi.lpMaximumApplicationAddress = (void *)0x7FFEFFFF;
we should look at this in order to be able to use more than 2GB user space
for apps that need it.
