Well, I could run unix with all 1536K, but not MS/PCDOS 3.2. So call it a
software issue of failing to work around the hardware issue. Obviously the
hardware was not a show-stopper.

But it was the 286 I did this on, not the earlier 8088, which I don't think
could reasonably have been expected to run unix; but the original comment
regarded the 80286.
