The bug is caused by PAT and not MTRR!

I decided switching off MTRR was a try worth. The terminal scrolls without MTRR
as slow as after a suspend-cycle, so I played around with the options: And
finally switch on MTRR but PAT off!

1. General Setup
 [*]Configure standard kernel features (expert...)
2. Processor type and features
 [*]MTRR support
 [*]MTRR cleanup
 [ ]x86 PAT support

I'am so glad to know what causes this problem.

PS: I think my average fps in ioquake3 increased about 5% without x86 PAT.
