    Linus,

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but my reading of the code indicates that the
    mtrr setup IS being done out of chrdev_init()
    (chrdev_init()->fbmem_init()->vesafb_init()->mtrr_add)(). While this is late in
    the boot sequence, it is still before smp_begin() is called is it not?
