Probably.  You're looking for PAE support.  I'm not sure what the state
is in 4-STABLE, but it's definitely present in 5-CURRENT.

A quick google points at the initial announcement over a year ago:

Also, looking at the release notes for 4.9, it *is* present.  A link ius
given to the manual page, which documents the caveats:
