This means that something went wrong with our detection of the
CPU-versus-GPU tiling swizzling mode, and object tiling under GEM will
be disabled as a result. I should get access to an eee 7xx on Thursday
to see what's up with it -- it's supposed to be just a normal 915gm as
far as I know.

Looks like we emit the error message even if your chipset doesn't
support MSI. That's a mistake, I'll get it cleaned up.

(MSI didn't actually get supported for integrated graphics until the
G965 for the desktop and GM45 for mobile, though it got supported for
ethernet and PEG earlier than that)
