Kernel Errors. A Problem?
 
I have this 2007 HP 6715S laptop (AMD RS690/SB600 chipset) which is throwing errors on the 3.2.29 kernel (Just updated to Slackware-14.0) I am now booting with pci=no_crs pcie_aspm=force which cut the errors mightily.

Code:

Oct  3 15:22:35 harriet kernel: PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
Oct  3 15:22:35 harriet kernel: pci 0000:00:14.2: address space collision: [mem
0xd0408000-0xd040bfff 64bit] conflicts with 0000:00:12.0 [mem 0xd0409000-0xd04093ff]

Oct  3 15:22:35 harriet kernel: system 00:09: [mem 0xfec00000-0xfec000ff] could not be reserved

Oct  3 15:22:35 harriet kernel: system 00:0a: [mem 0x00000000-0x07ffffff] could not be reserved

Oct  3 15:22:35 harriet kernel: ahci 0000:00:12.0: controller can't do 64bit DMA, forcing 32bit

In addition it ignores the (I guess video) aperature above 4GB. Is that correct? Am I OK to leave that(I'm uncomfortable with the memory clash)?

It sounds like the configuration for this kernel isn't appropriate for the hardware. "Kernel errors" are always "a problem."

I'd _love_ to know what to fix. I found a recent Bios update and will apply it.

The communication between acpi and kernel-3.2.29 is obviously not going well. kernel-3.0.4 gave no problems of this nature

Well the new bios was a big improvement, when I took _all_ the boot options off. On the plus side, it now announces

and ACPI seems a lot better featured & happier.
]No mention of aspm in the bootup. I was running pcie_aspm=force for the laptop power regression, and if I didn't the kernel would ask the bios about aspm then throw up it's hands. Now aspm isn't mentioned. Whassup? And on the minus side, I have these:

However, a check with lspci -v reveals that the numbers it's complaining about don't show. So it looks like they designed over non existent devices.
