Well that is really odd. I am trying hard to push my pci patch upstream:
I do believe PCI mode always work, so I would be interested if you
could report the bug upstream to have PCI mode work on all Powermac
(AGP is know to be broken).
Pay attention to your /etc/modules file check whether or not it
contains a option for the loaded modules, eg:
Finally your dmesg looks odd since the line `[drm] Forcing AGP to PCI
mode` comes only after the first error.
