    Thank you! That fixes the issue for me.

    If anyone else has extra/write-protect entry in /proc/mtrr that can be
    deleted - here is what you can drop in /etc/modprobe.d/drm.conf -

    # Free up a mtrr entry for drm
    install drm /sbin/ && { /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install $CMDLINE_OPTS drm ; }


    #modify the grep arg and disable= to your needs

    grep write-protect /proc/mtrr

    if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
    echo "disable=0" > /proc/mtrr
    exit 0
