Subjectre: skge error; hangs w/ hardware memory hole (was re: X86_64 + VIA + 4g problems)
References: <> 

Just to tie up a loose end... I tested Andi Kleen's new patch for this
issue on While the patch didn't automatically detect the VIA
chipset in my Asus A8V Deluxe, it allowed me to manually set a boot
option that fixes the problem (by disabling DMA to addresses over 4GB).
The fix is essentially the same as Andi posted here

although you have to patch pci-dma.c now, not pci-gart.c.

As another note - with my AGP aperture set to only 64MB, 3904MB are
visible. With the aperture set to 256MB, the full 4096MB are visible.
