In 64-bit mode on an UltraSparc, as much memory as the machine physically
has (no Sun currently planned has anywhere near 2^64 bytes).

In 32-bit mode it varies from 3GB to 4GB, depending on the kernel arch and
the OS version.  I could quote from memory but I'd probably be wrong, and
the differences are minor.
