Okay, staring at this, it definitely seems toxic to overlay the GART
over memory areas reserved by the BIOS. If I were to guess, I would say
that the problem here seems to be that the kernel thinks it is
overlaying 64 MiB of memory, but the actual GART is in fact 512 MiB in
size -- 131072 CPU pages -- which now overlaps the BIOS reserved areas.

Alex D., could you comment on the "num cpu pages" bit?
