weekend away + variable size PCI GART aperture for radeon

Myself and Gia spent a 3 day weekend away in Terrigal (about an hour and half outside Sydney), just sitting around lying on the beach, I managed to do some body-surfing, actually catching waves which is great fun, the waves were quite high today...

I used to drive over 4 years ago in Ireland for close to a year, but I never got my license when I lived there before I left for travelling, so I've lately gotten my .au learner drivers license. So today I drove from Terrigal back to our place in Balmain which is quite a long drive on a freeway, and then via a main highway through some suburbs of Sydney, the learner license restricts me to 80km/h so it takes a bit more time to get anywhere but I was most impressed that I actually made it :-)

Apart from that I've wanted to make radeon PCIE cards have a variable aperture size, this is one of the blocks on getting the TTM stuff working, so I'm glad I got it out of the way finally.... it also cleans up a bit of the pcigart code in the drm...
