I've built libdrm, mesa, xorg-server + xf86-video-ati(gitshot) to
support KMS. It starts in kms mode on my laptop but Xorg quickly
freezes. This is probably caused by my not well supported chip X200m
and should work much better with most other cards.

People with KMS issues can still append "radeon.modeset=0" to the
kernel boot line.

We need feedback for Ati and KMS and I need a way do get something
helpful into my system logs.
