The patch in question fixes problems encountered for applications using
`mremap ()'.  In the case of X, it may be a lower-level, specific
problem (I'd have said DMA or some such, but I am not familiar at all
with how X interacts with the kernel and video RAM).

FWIW there are 2 variants of Ultra5 video.
Early models only had enough video RAM for 8 bit video, later ones were 24 bit capable.

Making the wrong assumptions in a driver could cause problems, is this bug reproducible on both variants ?.

AFAIK all 270MHz models are 8 bit, but I am not sure about when the change happened.
