This is where it's loading the firmware aka microcode.

AFAICT from my e-mail archive, the 440 has >32 bit physical addresses
and is not cache coherent, neither of which is supported by the radeon
For the latter, you could try if hacking the driver as described in

point you to some patches I keep hearing about but haven't seen yet.
