fglrx driver 9.8 works with that same crashing mtrr.

Well, the line

mtrr: your BIOS has set up an incorrect mask, fixing it up.

and the word 'WARNING' led me to believe that the linux kernel is
working around a problem in my bios. But you're probably right, the
kernel (package) maintainers should know exactly what that means.

I'm still not sure a bug report against the kernel is appropriate
here, as I only have problems with specific versions of the fglrx
driver on one specific mainboard + bios.
