You have a memory overlap (your other message confirms it). The driver
that expects to access registers deals with RAM instead. All messages are

That's a separate problem. See "Processor type and features" -> "High
Memory Support" in the kernel configuration, or just remove
CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM=y from .config and run "make oldconfig".

It cannot fix the 896MB/1024MB issue, but it expected it to fix the PCMCIA
problems. Apparently it doesn't.
"lspci -v" used to show "Memory at 3f6fb000". I believe that area has
shifted elsewhere because 0x3f700000-0x40000000 is now marked as reserved
(which is a good thing).
Please post the output of "lspci -v" for the bridge again, after booting
with --no-mem-option and 1Gb of memory.
Also please post the contents of /proc/iomem (you posted /proc/meminfo).
