Frans, With or with out pat, in the recent kernels (like 2.6.26-rc4/rc5 etc), ioremap()
uses UC- and PCI mmap of /sys/devices/pci.../resource (used by X) uses UC-

And fb_mmap() also uses UC-.

It's interesting that you don't see this artifact with "nopat". Essentially with
or with out pat enabled, we use the same memory attributes. So depending on the
MTRR setup (set by X server), effective memory attribute across different mappings
should be same (which is UC- or WC with mtrr).

Can you also check, if there is any impact with kernel boot param for vesafb "mtrr:3"?

thanks,
suresh
