Ah, sorry, my wording when referring to fd.o bug 6111 was a bit
unclear. On my system at least, agpgart doesn't complain about the
aperture being too small, it just states the same value that is set in
the BIOS. I merely got the idea to change the setting from reading the
freedesktop bug comments.
Looking at drivers/char/agp/*.c in the kernel source, it seems that
only amd64_agp can complain that the apterture size is too small. I'm
using via_agp on my 32-bit system.
