I think this is only about the first one, the other one is slightly different 
("conflicts with Video RAM" vs. "conflicts with reserved"), and it was already 
present in 2.6.39.

Well, I did that, and for some of them I found that supposedly, they are 
harmless. I wonder however if that qualifies as a bug, i.e. is it justified to 
report a bug against the kernel (at bugs.debian.org) saying that there is this 
message during startup?

Kind regards,
