The commits on that tree looks fine to me. Thanks David! 
I've also done some testing on G45 here, I've also seen the write
faults before graphics device init or after dma unmap pages. I tried
to look it up in my memo, which turns out one message like this should
be a BIOS bug that doesn't initialize the GTT table correctly. But I'm
quite sure about it now, better to ask our chipset people to verify if
this problem has been fixed or not.
