The wild VGA comes from the patch which changed ioremap.

Now ioremap would not remap memory to region 6 unless that memory is

Unfortunately on the Tiger Machine, VGA ram base was marked as

So you can see the problem disappear if change VGA_MAP_MEM to use

But I am not quite sure if we can fully trust EFI on this attribute.
