    I am not accessing the AGP bus as my frame buffer is located on the PCI
    00:08.0 Multimedia video controller: Unknown device f1d0:efac
    Subsystem: Unknown device f1d0:efac
    Flags: bus master, stepping, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 10
    Memory at f4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
    Memory at f6000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=16M]
    (I am working with the second memory address)

    Any recommendations on where to start hacking? Would it be a good idea
    to add O_DIRECT to a mmaped PCI space? The kernel should not be doing
    any buffering whatsoever, as we will be coming close to filling the pci
    bus up with transfers from direct disk->fb already. (We are already
    doing buffering on the FB card as well)
