PAE and AWE

Microsoft has a cool API called Address Windowing Extensions which lets applications break the 3/3.5GB barrier and address up to 64GB of RAM when the OS is in PAE mode. MySQL-InnoDB supports this API on Windows.

Does anybody know if a similar API exists in any state for Linux or FreeBSD? UnixWare does.
