fwiw, just switching from linux 4.4 to linux 4.5 triggers the failure.
libpciaccess has not been changed, nor openchrome.

This might as well be a behaviour of the driver that was tolerated before but
is not anymore and thus might warrant a fix on our side ? While looking around
the net for issues with pci_device_map_range, I've read about something similar
in mga driver which was mapping 2 crtc to the same fb for clone mode. This
worked for a time but then the driver needed to be fixed. This was circa 2010
iirc, so might be something different...

I've tried that, it didn't help.
