I like KMS a lot, and afaik it's recommended to try and test it as
it's the "way to go".
But since it seems to cause problems to some users, I think it would
be safer to post a news item about it.
At least providing the way to disable it at boot time in case it
And what happens when you have radeon kms enabled, but boot with a
vga= option or have another framebuffer driver enabled ?
Does it just fail to initialize kms, and everything works fine, just
like when disabling kms ?

nvidia-enabled laptop and now nouveau kms is great with it :)
