If you don't have an AGP graphics card, there'll be nothing really
set up, unless you are using the IOMMU feature of the x86-64 kernel.
Setting up of GART tables etc only happens when the graphics
drivers (DRI) asks it to.

Does booting with iommu=off fix this for you?
It may be that some driver is doing something that it
shouldn't.  If it does make the problem go away, what
devices do you have in the system (lspci output please)
