thanks for the bisecting...

so those two patches uncover some problems.

so kernel try to reallocate apperture. because BIOS allocated is pointed to RAM or size is too small.

but your radeon does use [0xa0000000, 0xbfffffff)

[ 4.281993] radeon 0000:01:05.0: VRAM: 320M 0x00000000C0000000 - 0x00000000D3FFFFFF (320M used)

and the one seems working:

will use different position...

[ 4.250159] radeon 0000:01:05.0: VRAM: 320M 0x00000000C0000000 - 0x00000000D3FFFFFF (320M used)

So question is why radeon is using the address [0xa0000000 - 0xc000000], and in E820 it is RAM ....

so looks bios program wrong address to the radon card?

Thanks
