    No it is accessing system memory by DMA to transfer frames. Since the
    system has 128MB ram, the addresses are probably all in the first 128MB

    I tried changing cyrix.c to explicitly set the serialize bit (0x8000 in
    PCR0) rather than explcitly clearing it as is done now. Didn't make a
    difference. I tried reversing the memory bypass setting, which also did
    nothing. Enabling CONFIG_X86_OOSTORE and recompiling however does make
    a difference.

    I did:
    depends on ((MWINCHIP3D || MWINCHIP2 || MWINCHIPC6) && MTRR) || MGEODEGX1
    since I wasn't sure of the precedence in the Kconfig files.
