memory maps

Fatal server error:
xf86MapVidMem: Could not mmap framebuffer (0x95600000,0x10000000) (Invalid argument)

Maybe it's good to try to figure out what's going on here.  I found
some links[1][2].

MTRR memory type rage registers control of how accesses to memory
ranges by the CPU are cached

PAT improvement to MTRR (per page)
