It goes back to at least 4.0 - that's the oldest kernel I had laying
around precompiled. The messages about ROM signature changed somewehere
between 4.0 and 4.7 (4.7 is already like 4.13) but after some time, the
same vmalloc errors appear.

Maybe the userspace has changed with more respawning that brings the
problem out.

I tried to read the code but I do not understand it yet. The warning
seems to come from generic pci_map_rom() checking ROM size, and
returning rom pointer to aty128fb (it returns resource size too but that
is ignored). aty128fb starts to look at the x86 PCI ROM signature again
but does not tell that the signature is missing. How come?
