since the submission of the commit above `CONFIG_CPU_ADDR_BITS` is set
to 36 bits on most Intel devices instead of 32 bit, which it has been
since almost two years after a bad conflict resolution in the revert
commit 51676b14 (Revert "Use broadcast SIPI to startup siblings) ,
where the checks from commit c7fb2ae6 (Intel cpus: use CPU_ADDR_BITS
from Kconfig during CAR)  were removed.
I was told it should not make a difference for machines below 4 GB, but
it’d be great if you could test it on your Intel boards.
