Linux Find Out CPU Support 36-bit Physical Addressing Or Not

Q. Physical Address Extension (PAE) refers to a feature of x86 and x86-64 processors that allows more than 4G bytes of physical memory to be used in 32-bit systems.

How do I find out if my Linux kernel supports 36-bit or more physical addressing?
