They are interesting to me too, especially the drm and mtrr messages.
This may be a kernel bug.

That's for operating systems that don't have drivers to initialize
plug and play devices, such as DOS.

PnPBIOS: Disabled by ACPI PNP
is a normal message when ACPI is active. The mtrr message I've
never seen before. Or at least I haven't noticed it before.
There is a newer kernel available in squeeze now, 2.6.32-5.
Maybe it will fix the problem.
# aptitude update
# aptitude full-upgrade
This will also be a good test of your kernel installation environment
changes. If everything was customized correctly, the symlinks should
be automatically updated and lilo should be automatically run. Since
only the two most recently installed kernels will normally be bootable,
you will normally want to manually purge any older kernels that are
still installed to save disk space *after* the upgrade. For example:
aptitude purge linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686
