Truth told, it isn't necessary anymore.  All this does is put the video control memory on wallstreets (it checks) at 0x830-- rather than 0x800--, which is where the current kernel puts it iirc.  A leftover from the days of the OF-caused ATY memory overlap.  Now, this mostly just makes /proc/iomem look cleaner.  nothing more.

That segment (the whole pmac_pci.c section of the patch) does only that, and can be ignored.  Don't know why i posted that part to tell the truth.
