Ah, really? One thing which was bothering me was what happens when I use
non-onboard graphics in one of these beasts -- are individual gfx
drivers going to need to be fixed too?

I pondered that briefly. But then observed that phys_to_gart() and
gart_to_phys() _always_ describe an identity mapping, so perhaps they
could just be ditched completely?

That's called page_address(), and it (as well as the above construct) is
broken with highmem pages. It's actually OK here, since this page is
allocated with GFP_DMA32 -- but for cleanliness' sake I should probably
switch agp_map_page() to take a 'struct page *' rather than a virtual
address.

I suppose so -- we could eliminate the other vmalloc_flag field in
'struct agp_memory' that way too? Doesn't shrink the structure any --
we'd just end up with padding where the flags were.

http://lwn.net/Articles/342915/ ?

In fact, can't scatterlists do something like that already?

Yeah, probably a good idea.
