    Intel and GFXUMA: fix MTRR and use uma_resource()
    Commit 2d42b340034ff005693482ef9ca34ce3e0f08371 changed the
    variable MTRR setup and removed compensation of uma_memory_size in
    the cacheable memory resources.
    Since the cacheable region size was no longer divisible by a large
    power of 2, like 256 MB, this caused excessive use of MTRRs.
    As first symptoms, slow boot with grub and poor user response.
    As a solution, register the actual top of low ram with ram_resource(),
    and do not subtract the UMA/TSEG regions from it.
    TSEG may require further work as the original did not appear exactly
    right to begin with. To have UMA as un-cacheable, use uma_resource().
