   However, in PCI-X mode, we do not have the capability to generate
   SAC addresses.

The device can generate addresses that have the top-32bits 0 though.

You problem is rather that you cannot guarentee to be able to allocate
physical memory which is <4GB on each and every node.

That is very different from a "PCI-X issue".  It is a "this NUMA
platform" issue.
