Yes. This is a different problem than the freeing invalid type one. Are these
errors also with latest git kernel? Can you try the patch below (which is
a part of a bigger cleanup patch I have lined up).

From: Suresh Siddha <suresh.b.siddha@intel.com>

Fix pat_x_mtrr_type() to use UC_MINUS when the mtrr type return UC. This
is to be consistent with ioremap() and ioremap_nocache() which uses
UC_MINUS.
