The VRAM and GTT addresses in the dmesg are internal GPU addresses not
system addresses. The GPU has it's own internal address space for
on-chip memory clients (texture samplers, render buffers, display
controllers, etc.). The GPU sets up two apertures in it's internal
address space and on-chip client requests are forwarded to the
appropriate place by the GPU's memory controller. Addresses in the
GPU's VRAM aperture go to local vram on discrete cards, or to the
stolen memory at the top of system memory for IGP cards. Addresses in
the GPU's GTT aperture hit a page table and get forwarded to the
appropriate dma pages.
