Heh, interesting, since we were talking about reverting that one for other
reasons entirely.

See the thread "x86: split e820 reserved entries record to late" (yeah, I
know that subject isn't very grammatical or sensible) for some patches
worth trying _after_ you've reverted that one.

Anyway, clearly that commit needs to be reverted regardless, so I'll do
the revert. Can you please test the appended test-patch by Yinghai on top
of the revert?

(This is not the final version, but it should be sufficient to be tested)

And if you have the whole dmesg, that would be useful.

Subject: [PATCH] x86: split e820 reserved entries record to late v3
Date: Thu, 28 Aug 2008 17:41:29 -0700
so could let BAR res register at first, or even pnp?

v2: insert e820 reserve resources before pnp_system_init
v3: fix merging problem in tip/x86/core
please drop the one in tip/x86/core use this one instead
