    Subjectadding pat causes conflicting memory types

    I've seen this for sometime(and reported it a few months back),
    but didn't experience any anomalies.
    also have seen some(quick google) reports about this(people have been
    unable to boot there systems because of this)

    with having pat enabled dmesg shows this:

    [ 34.699209] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
    [ 34.724925] pci 0000:01:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
    [ 34.725318] [drm] Initialized radeon 1.29.0 20080528 on minor 0

    [ 36.081895] reserve_memtype failed 0x40000000-0x48000000, track
    write-combining, req write-combining


    when disabling pat I get no message just this:

    [ 34.649170] Linux agpgart interface v0.103
    [ 34.699209] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
    [ 34.724925] pci 0000:01:00.0: setting latency timer to 64

    [ 35.193513] [drm] Num pipes: 1
    [ 35.193529] [drm] writeback test succeeded in 1 usecs


    FWIW: with a macbook there is no inconvenience, but I guess that changes
    with others.
