Looks fine to me.  Are you loading both the agpgart.ko and the
relevant chipset driver ? agp-intel.ko agp-amd-k7.ko etc ?
(This btw, is yet another reason we chose to build agpgart in,
 to avoid end-user confusion).

As well as Fedora kernel maintainer, I maintain the upstream agpgart code.
Believe me, it works just fine.  If there was something as fundamentally
broken as you state it is, I'd be getting a lot more bug reports.
Yours is the only one I've seen suggesting any different.
