I recently replaced a 3x509 ISA ethernet card with a D-Link 500TX (DEC 21140
based) PCI ethernet card, and expanded the memory in my system from 48M to 96M.
The systems seems to be running just fine, and everything is hunkey-dorey except
when I attempt to run the XF86_SVGA server using linear addressing.
The video card is an S3 968 based card, and using the aperture driver can run
with the XF86_S3 server just fine, however it issues an interesting message when
starting the server:
(--) S3: PCI: base address not correctly aligned or address conflict
                base address changed from 0xe4000000 to 0xf8000000
(--) S3: PCI: 968 rev 0, Linear FB @ 0xf8000000
(--) checkDevMem: using aperture driver /dev/xf86

If I attempt to use the XF86_SVGA driver, the system freezes (SCSI light on, no
keyboard activity, the whole bit).  Disabling the aperture lkm and running
XF86_SVGA yields an error that address 0xe5000000 is out of range, and the
server exits.

This system worked fine before the ethernet and memory change, and I'm lost as
to how to solve this problem, and allow the XF86_SVGA server to run once again. 
The system is -current as of July 23rd (kernel and userland, ap.o LKM rebuilt),
and is using pmap_new, uvm, and egcs.  The dmesg output follows.
