The only thing we have to do in LinuxBIOS is allocate MEM resource
for AGP aperature and set the size information in the northbridge
resigters. It is done in K8 but I have no idea if it is done for
the EPIA.

The linux apg driver does almost everything we need to actually use
the agp controller (like setting gart table, 2X v.s. 4X etc.)
