Your AGP aperture size is different from your card's framebuffer size.
The DRM was guilty for some time of needlessly mapping all of your
card's framebuffer, but that should have been fixed a few months ago.
Default AGP aperture size is chosen by the BIOS, on the other hand.
I'm really glad John's dealing with this, since it was likely a major
stability issue on newer hardware (i915 has either a 128MB or 256MB
aperture, for example).
