How about this patch? I'm waiting confirmation from another user, but
your problem looks quite similar.

Subject: [PATCH] i915: Use the correct mask to detect i830 aperture size.

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/597075

commit f1befe71fa7a79ab733011b045639d8d809924ad introduced a regression when
detecting aperture size of some i915 adapters, e.g., those on the
Intel Q35 shipset.

The original report: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15733
The regression report: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16294

According to the specification found at http://intellinuxgraphics.org/VOL_1_graphics_core.pdf,
the PCI config space register I830_GMCH_CTRL is a mirror of GMCH Graphics Control. The correct
macro for isolating the aperture size bits is therefore I830_GMCH_GMS_MASK along with the
attendant changes to the case statement.
