64MB out of how much? Does it even matter?

You could turn off CONFIG_GART_IOMMU and not build aperture_64.c at all.

I think then you'll fall back to swiotlb or whatever and that will most
likely slow down DMA ... the story was something like that, at least,
memory's hazy. Joerg's on CC, he'll correct me if I'm talking bull.
