So the X server is 32 bit? If so, there's probably indeed some kind of
32/64 bit breakage somewhere, though unlikely related to the warnings in
the bug report you referenced. It looks like although the X driver
thinks setting the new memory map parameter succeeded, the DRM thinks it
never happened. For the record, can you provide the rest of the DRM
related kernel output as well?
