I think you'll find if you're on a Linux box with a proper 64 bit
kernel, you'll already have this transparently enabled for you. So
that means that I've tried the hardware side of this, but I didn't
even know... I can't speak for the Windows side; I'm running a 32 bit
Windows on that box.

(Sorry, this wasn't your question. But I can't help it! I like stuff
that "just works" when the support is available.)
