They look related. I've now found the orm output:
orm0: <Option ROMs> at iomem 0xe0000-0xe3fff,0xdf800-0xdffff,0xd0000-0xd17ff,0xc0000-0xcefff on isa0
The last one is the video BIOS. It's interesting to note that it
doesn't report the 4 kB BIOS at 0xcf000, which suggests that at this
point the 16 kB area is already unmapped.
I've worked around the problem by compiling the video BIOS into the X
server and not trying to access the BIOS in the machine. Obviously
not a solution, but it works for the moment. I'd really like to track
down the problem. Does anybody have an idea?
