So, I'm going back on this and implementing early hooks anyways. I'm
going to take some time to see if I can optimize this at all so that we

Same user who reported the radeon fail confirmed that udev as an early
hook works well with loading radeon in early userspace, but I guess we
knew already that it would work.
