Did it trigger the BUG()/BUG_ON() in mtrr2protval()/fallback_mtrr_type()?
If yes, could you please print the actual value out?

It is the BUG() in fallback_mtrr_type(). I changed it to a printk and
it prints 1 for the value of mtrr.


Then I suspect pat is not enabled in your box, could you please check
CONFIG_X86_PAT is selected in your .config file, pat is shown in
/proc/cpuid, "nopat" kernel parameter is used, and dmesg | grep PAT.

I will post a fix if the suspect is right.
