Subjectmatroxfb on 2.4.0 / PCI: Failed to allocate...
Hi, all.  I'm trying to get matroxfb running on a G400Max (dualhead).

Of course, I have i2c bit-banging on and the relevant Matrox options
turned on (as modules or compiled-in), and I don't see the expected
`framebuffer: blah' after the `matroxfb: Matrox Millennium G400 MAX (AGP)

I worry about some PCI initialization output (from dmesg):

# PCI: Probing PCI hardware
# Unknown bridge resource 0: assuming transparent
# PCI: Using IRQ router VIA [1106/0686] at 00:07.0
# PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 01:00.0
# PCI: Failed to allocate resource 0 for Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G400 AGP

That `device 01:00.0' is obviously the AGP MGA. 'dmesg' continues later

# matroxfb: Matrox Millennium G400 MAX (AGP) detected
# i2c-core.o: i2c core module
# i2c-algo-bit.o: i2c bit algorithm module
# i2c-core.o: driver maven registered. [...]

...and the loaded modules include...

Ideas? Pointers? I'm available for questions and flames.
