That doesn't seem right.

The rules are:

the generic aperture has to be equal or smaller than the hw aperture,
otherwise the generic driver will be trashing random hw pieces on the
machine.

So with that in mind, the check makes sure the generic aperture starts
somewhere inside the hw aperture, which the test clearly gets right.

Have you got a pointer to a machine where it fails?

Dave.
