I looked at applying this one to agpgart.git, as it's less controversial
than the other patch. However,..

- MIME : just say no. I had to hand fix up a few things before git would
even see that I was feeding it a diff.
- No Signed-off-by: line.
- The diff adds trailing whitespace. This makes git sad also.
(This problem also affects the other diff, which is possibly why...)
- Finally..
error: patch failed: drivers/char/agp/generic.c:1076
error: drivers/char/agp/generic.c: patch does not apply
error: patch failed: drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.c:256
error: drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.c: patch does not apply

Perhaps this diff should have have been [1/2] instead.

Can you fix those up, and resend this one?

The other diff I want to chew over some more before applying, especially
after Arjan's comments.
