Speaking of mtrr and e820....

Could someone please take a peek at
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10508 ?

For some reason we seem to have turned this:

[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009f800 (usable)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 000000000009f800 - 00000000000a0000 (reserved)

[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 00000000ff000000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved)
[ 0.000000] BIOS-e820: 0000000100000000 - 0000000140000000 (usable)

into this:

reg00: base=0xc0000000 (3072MB), size=1024MB: uncachable, count=1
reg01: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size=4096MB: write-back, count=1
reg02: base=0x100000000 (4096MB), size=1024MB: write-back, count=1
reg03: base=0xbf700000 (3063MB), size= 1MB: uncachable, count=1
reg04: base=0xbf800000 (3064MB), size= 8MB: uncachable, count=1

which screws up the X server's attempt to map the video memory at
0xd0000000.

Thanks.
