What we've found so far:
- K8 mtrr settings are incorrect for the fixed MTRRs for VGA.
  There are extension bits that are more or less random that we need to 
  fix in linuxbios. 
- Previously mentioned routing stuff needs to be set in the K8 northbridge
- GART table settings are not correct, so GART is not yet there.

But we're still pretty close. We have shell scripts and a quick hack to 
linuxbios and the cards are *almost* there. Once we get all the bits, we 
can start to get linuxbios set up correctly.
