+x86/PAT: Xorg:705 map pfn expected mapping type uncached-minus for [mem 0xfd000000-0xfdffffff], got write-combining
+The entry in question is setup by uvesafb which in its
+uvesafb_ioremap() function calls ioremap_wc().
+It appears that Xorg mmaps this from userspace, then later does a
+fork() to execute a utility. At this point, when creating the vmas for
+the new process, the pat code says "eeek!" as the protection mode for
+the new vmas don't match the old one, returns -EINVAL, the process dies
+and X goes with it.
+There are a few hammers we can hit this with, we can boot with "nopat"
+option which makes the problem go away, or turn off CONFIG_X86_PAT. No
+surprises there. Changing uvesafb to use mtrr=0 doesn't help since the
+ioremap_wc call still happens.
+The real issue is the "expected mapping type uncached-minus for got
+write-combining" message, it all goes wrong from there.
+Upon looking at the code and scratching my head for a long while, I
+notice that there are two ways of representing the protection mode
+data, "enum page_cache_mode" and "pgprot_t & _PAGE_CACHE_MASK".
+The exact meaning of pgprot_t depends on which CPU you're running,
+older CPUs have errata meaning only a small number of bits can be used.
+The exact mapping table is determined by __cachemode2pte_tbl and is
+updated at boot by calls from update_cache_mode_entry().
+The result of this if you map enum -> pgprot_t, then try to do pgprot_t
+-> enum, you can get different values since its not a 1:1 mapping.
+This means the comparison in reserve_pfn_range() where it does "pcm !=
+want_pcm" isn't correct and can trigger even in cases where there isn't
+a problem.
+This can be "fixed" by doing cachemode2protval(pcm) !=
+cachemode2protval(want_pcm) and checking whether the protection bits
+match, rather than the enum values, since in reality this is what we
+really care about. With that change, X boots up just fine.
+We don't see this on qemux86-64 since that has more PAT bits working
+and hence the values map correctly.
