Where is the consensus being questioned? AGP is often so broken on savage cards (especially if you use hibernation and sleep) so forcing all savage cards to PCI would be a good thing IMHO. Even better, it should default to PCI and let people experiment with AGP if they want and know how.

I have been fighting and reporting AGP trouble for like 4 years now (ever since DRI was available) and given the age of these cards and the developer interest I don't have high hopes for seeing it fixed. I would not be surprised if there's a hardware bug in them, also XP was unstable the short time I ran it on my laptop (with Savage TwisterK).
