please test the final one ... ...

You should get back 64M memory back.

[PATCH] x86_64: checking aperture size order

some system is using 32M for gart and agp when memory is less 4G.
kernel will reject and try to allcate another 64M that is not needed.
we will lose 64M ram.

this patch add workaround by checking aper_base/order between NB and agp bridge.
if they are the same, and memory size is than 4G, will let it go.
