hrs>  I have doubt about this change because int memsize->u_int memsize

hrs>  invisible.  The questionable code fragment in agp.c is the following:

hrs>  memsize = ptoa(Maxmem) >> 20;

hrs>  }

hrs>  ptoa(Maxmem)>>20 will occur a wraparound problem when Maxmem>=2GB, so

hrs>  only on i386 since the definition of ptoa() is "#define ptoa(x) ((x)
hrs>  << PAGE_SHIFT)".  The other platforms use a cast like "#define
hrs>  ptoa(x) ((unsigned long)(x) << PAGE_SHIFT)".

hrs>  I think it can be solved by using "ptoa((unsigned long)Maxmem)" or

ptoa() is machine-dependent; (unsigned long) should be OK.
(vm_paddr_t) would mess up the namespace.

What hassles me is that Maxmem is *NOT* unsigned, grrr...
