Default Bug#641176: Radeon 9200SE, memory overlapping

With Radeon 9200SE I'm not able to use X, apparently because its memory
can't be used.

With any kernel (tried 2.6.32, 3.0.0, 3.1-rc6) I will get dmesg lines
about overlapping.
[ 0.073187] pnp 00:00: disabling [mem 0x000cd000-0x000cffff] because

This happens always and then I can't use X. It will tell me that no
screens was found. System works fine with ATI Rage 128VR (32MB, PCI).
With 2.6.32 I get also: [drm] Detected VRAM RAM=0M, BAR=0M
and with 3.0.0: [drm] Detected VRAM RAM=128M, BAR=0M
3.1-rc6 doesn't seem to have anything about this. Otherwise they seem to
be correct.

System I used has Gigabyte GA-6BXE motherboard (rev 2.1, Intel 440BX
chipset) and VIA C3 (1 GHz, Nehemiah-core) in addition to Radeon 9200SE
(R92LE, 128MB). BIOS is the latest available from Gigabyte. OS is Debian
Wheezy with Experimental kernel (for testing).

I have already reported this to Debian as bug #641176.

Logs and stuff with 3.1-rc6 from Debian Experimental:

[...]

The graphics card apparently requires 256 MB of address space
(prefetchable), not 128 MB. The BIOS programs the bridge to its slot to
cover this much address space:

[ 0.065815] pci 0000:00:01.0: PCI bridge to [bus 01-01]
[ 0.065827] pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge window [io 0x9000-0x9fff]
[ 0.065839] pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge window [mem 0xe8000000-0xe9ffffff]
[ 0.065853] pci 0000:00:01.0: bridge window [mem 0xd8000000-0xe7ffffff pref]

But PCI devices require their address assignments to be aligned to
multiples of their size, and that bridge window is only aligned to a
multiple of 128 MB. So when the kernel looks at the graphics card, it
finds that the address assignment doesn't match the bridge window and
cannot be used:

[ 0.069846] pci 0000:01:00.0: no compatible bridge window for [mem 0xd0000000-0xdfffffff pref]
...
[ 0.123099] pci 0000:01:00.0: BAR 0: can't assign mem pref (size 0x10000000)
[ 0.123114] pci 0000:01:00.0: BAR 0: trying firmware assignment [mem 0xd0000000-0xdfffffff pref]
[ 0.123132] pci 0000:01:00.0: BAR 0: [mem 0xd0000000-0xdfffffff pref] conflicts with PCI Bus 0000:01 [mem 0xd8000000-0xe7ffffff pref]

This seems like a BIOS bug to me - it has programmed the bridge and the
graphics card inconsistently.

If you seem to know what you are doing, you'll be given more to do.
