OK, it required some changes on different edges, but now I have it...
Patches 0001-0003 introduce functionality/changes to the MTRR and sysfs
subsystems. Patch 0004 is the main patch which sets up the MTRR entries when
pci memory regions are mmapped. The Patches 0005-0006 also change ioremap()
and set_mempry_wc() to set up MTRR entries. These two are completely optional,
especially and there is currently no way to automatically remove MTRR entries
set up with them.
What do you think about these patches?
