Public bug reported:

I recently updated to the latest (2.6.35-8-generic) kernel on a Maverick
system, but rebooting after the update caused Xorg not to start.  I see
the following messages in dmesg:

[   33.716949] Xorg:1316 conflicting memory types e0000000-e0546000 write-combining<->uncached-minus
[   33.716954] reserve_memtype failed 0xe0000000-0xe0546000, track write-combining, req write-combining
[   49.853274] Xorg:1492 conflicting memory types e0000000-e0546000 write-combining<->uncached-minus
[   49.853279] reserve_memtype failed 0xe0000000-0xe0546000, track write-combining, req write-combining

I also see an error in Xorg.0.log:

[    49.853] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to allocate primary buffer: out of
memory.

I tried reverting to the previous kernel, but this doesn't fix the
problem.  That makes me think maybe some other update caused the
problem, but I can't find anything that looks suspicious in dpkg.log.
