 $ /home/bob/tmp/01/mtrr-uncover/mtrr-uncover Initial MTRR
configuration: 1  0x000000000-0x1ffffffff write-back
         3  0x0bf600000-0x0bf7fffff uncachable
         4  0x0bf800000-0x0bfffffff uncachable
         0  0x0c0000000-0x0ffffffff uncachable
 2  0x200000000-0x23fffffff write-back

Final MTRR configuration:
 1' 0x000000000-0x07fffffff write-back
51' 0x080000000-0x0bfffffff write-back
         3  0x0bf600000-0x0bf7fffff uncachable
         4  0x0bf800000-0x0bfffffff uncachable
50  0x100000000-0x1ffffffff write-back
 2  0x200000000-0x23fffffff write-back

Commands for /proc/mtrr to make these changes:
disable=0
disable=1
base=0x000000000 size=0x080000000 type=write-back
base=0x080000000 size=0x040000000 type=write-back
base=0x100000000 size=0x100000000 type=write-back
