Default Re: [BUG REPORT] 260.19.36 64-bit Linux driver conflicts with AMD 890FX IOMMU

Motherboard: Sabertooth 990FX (bios: 0901)
Kernel: 3.3.2-1-ARCH
Driver: 295.40
CPU: Phenom II X4 965

With both IOMMU and the 64Mb option enabled, the xorg driver fails to load, giving the same error as mentioned before. If I pass "iommu=pt" as a boot option, Xorg starts up correctly.
"iommu=pt" allows my system to boot too. But I'm not sure the IOMMU is being used fully when this parameter is specified. See the notes on this patchset
