I think the gart memory issue is because of my recent update to gnome 3.6, i
didn't see that with gdm 3.4. The machine also boots very fast now after the
systemd upgrade, from grub to gdm i would say its about 5~7 seconds. Also when
grub starts, the screen stays at console login prompt with the mouse cursor
available and it takes about 2~3 seconds till gdm starts doing its fading thing
to login prompt.

I will try to revert it back and test it again when i get home.
