Default Re: horrible 2D performance

@PrakashP: ideally the kernel would configure and support a WC entry in the PAT, but in addition to basic support that's trivial to implement on Linux (even taking into account the errata you refer to), there's been interest in establishing a mechanism to prevent the creation of mappings with conflicting memory types. This is relatively simple for the NVIDIA driver to ensure internally, but non-trivial to implement globally.
