dmesg | grep -i memory
real memory  = 2147483648 (2048 MB)
avail memory = 2082623488 (1986 MB)
agp0: detected 7932k stolen memory

http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24789#c22 but I have no
working options so far. I'm not even sure that this is the correct bug

It's a shame to have to disable multhreading on an dual thread atom :-)
