I by no means intend to rush things along, so if you think you need more
time, please take it ;-)

Just wanted to know where we stand... I'll try the Radeon KMS thing
again once I get through this mountain of email that accumulated over
the vacation and let you know how the current bits work.

Last time I tried KMS swapped the two DVI outputs wrt. the !KMS setup,
which is rather annoying during the transition period, but nothing I
can't live with once the stuff is stable enough to use all day.
