root cause:
when 4G installed.
BIOS put ACPI etc need the hole
[ 0.000000] BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009bc00 (usable)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 000000000009bc00 - 00000000000a0000 (reserved)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000000e3000 - 0000000000100000 (reserved)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 0000000000100000 - 00000000bffa0000 (usable)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000bffa0000 - 00000000bffae000 (ACPI data)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000bffae000 - 00000000bfff0000 (ACPI NVS)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000bfff0000 - 00000000c0000000 (reserved)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000fee00000 - 00000000fee01000 (reserved)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000ffb00000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 0000000100000000 - 0000000140000000 (usable)
so resource will be reserved for 0xbffa0000 - 0xbfff0000 for ACPI
0x100000 - 0xbffa0000 for RAM...

then BIOS set
[ 0.240007] pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge 64bit mmio pref: [0xbdf00000-0xddefffff]
[ 0.237102] pci 0000:01:00.0: reg 10 32bit mmio: [0xc0000000-0xcfffffff]
that is conflict with reserved res.
so it can not be reserved Kernel.

then Kernel try to get range from 0x140000000 ( above the RAM, 5G and above 4g)
and set let the bridge to use it, and your ATI cards to use it.

but the problem is that your ATI only support 32bit ...

solution:
1. get updated BIOS?
2. kernel side:
a. reserved return one could use range ( shrinked range ), and set it back to pci bridge?
b. or add pci=earlyset like to hack the pci conf in early stage.

also in kernel side, we should not assign 64bit range to pci device that only take 32bit pref, it mess up the pci conf.
