Digging further into this it seems that no x86 capable driver would
currently be affected, and I know too little about the ppc/ia64 ports
to be able to tell whether they could suffer from problems here (there
are AGP drivers for these platforms that set cant_use_aperture, and
that is what - afaict - triggers use of the possibly problematic code
