Yes, this works as well, good catch!

It only fails for the opregion. I feel I've done enough bisecting for today,
but it's certainly broken in -next and the ioremap works in 2.6.37-rc6.
Should the opregion actually be writeback cached? Maybe something is
wrong in reserve_memtype.

Loading i915 in -rc6 also crashes my system hard when modeset=1, but
that may be a hardware problem -- the same one that used to cause occasional
hangs with i915 KMS, forcing me to run X11 with the vesa driver.
