Problem Description: Since the introduction of the mtrr fixup patches 
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=99fc8d424bc5d803fe92cad56c068fe64e73747a

my machine no longer is able to have a working display or network card.  The e1000 probe fails with error 5.  The display is less helpful - no error is reported, but I can't actually see anything on the screen.  As this machine doesn't have working serial on it at the moment, my steps are reboot, wait, reboot again to old kernel, and read the kernel log.  Not so easy to debug, sorry :)

Steps to reproduce:
Comment 1 Jesse Barnes 2008-03-12 14:31:30 UTC
This may be due to the e820 fixup code Yinghai added.  Any ideas Yinghai?
Comment 2 Yinghai Lu 2008-03-12 18:29:06 UTC
32 bit trimming
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=093af8d7f0ba3c6be1485973508584ef081e9f93

and one fix 
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=20651af9ac60fd6e31360688ad44861a7d05256a

should fix that.

it seems

change to

and we should get
