1) as posted some weeks ago: early KMS mode is broken for me.
mkinitcpio fails to load the firmware though the firmware hook is
enabled and is included in the image. last line I see is:

platform radeon_cp.0: firmware: requesting radeon/R300_cp.bin

then it stops working. CTRL+ALT+DEL is working so I expect the kernel
not to be crashed.

2) KMS late mode is working in proper resolution now but it's highly
unstable for me in X. I will try to update to a new ddx git shot and
maybe we need a new libdrm to get this stable.

3) without kms radeon seems stable for me.

4) glxgears nearly doubled to 31 kernels but supertuxkart instantly
[andyrtr at laptop64 ~]$ unset LC_ALL; LANG=C supertuxkart 
Data files will be fetched from: '/usr/share/supertuxkart/'
Highscores will be saved in
File radeon_dma.c function radeonReleaseDmaRegions line 348 Leaking dma
buffer object!
supertuxkart: radeon_bo_legacy.c:207: legacy_is_pending: Assertion
`bo_legacy->is_pending <= bo->cref' failed. Abgebrochen

Just a few first impressions with this "stable" kernel release.
