    Yes. That is the basic question. Not all X drivers need it and
    potentially the current kernel drm modules can use the
    PAT infrastructure that has been merged.

    Further a SMM monitor running 100 times or more slower may cause
    problems if SMM mode is entered frequently, slowing down the entire
    system not just X.

    So if you don't have X or you have a crazy SMM monitor this can
    be an issue.
