Signoff x86_64. Using nouveau on my desktop and new 6.12.4 ati driver
on my laptop.

Radeon state: With new xf86-video-ati 6.12.4 driver simply add "radeon"
to the modules array in mkinitcpio.conf and recreate the initrd. That's
all for kms. 

The bad: With kms enabled this way I don't get hardware 3d acceleration.
But I never had any before with old DRI(1) with my X200m (R300 family).

The good: I get 3d acceleration for the 1st time with my card using
DRI2 when I boot my 2nd kernel menu entry that has radeon.modeset=0

So !kms=3d or kms=like before for me. Still better to have that choice
than no kms and no option to get 3d like before.

I like it. Probably we can get 3d also working soon together kms. I
just need some time to read around.
