- disable_mtrr_cleanup [X86]

- mtrr_gran_size=nn[KMG] [X86]
- Used for mtrr cleanup. It is granularity of mtrr block.
- Default is 1.
- Large value could prevent small alignment from

-
- mtrr_spare_reg_nr=n [X86]
- Format: <integer>
- Range: 0,7 : spare reg number
- Default : 1
- Used for mtrr cleanup. It is spare mtrr entries number.
- Set to 2 or more if your graphical card needs more.
-
- disable_mtrr_trim [X86, Intel and AMD only]
- By default the kernel will trim any uncacheable
- memory out of your available memory pool based on
- MTRR settings. This parameter disables that behavior,
- possibly causing your machine to run very slowly.
