Comment(by ringlis):

 Finally got Radeon working with newest kernel 2.6.33, libdrm-2.4.18, Xorg-
 server-1.7.4, and Mesa-7.6.1.

 Important kernel config parts:
 # CONFIG_FB_RADEON is not set

 My first reboot into this kernel, lost FB bootup had to select mode=0 ie
 80x24.  It looks like the kernel hangs at loading the various 770*.bin
 files but just wait and it will finally finish booting.  It also changes
 the mode from 80x24 to normal FB bootup after it finally loads all the
 *.bin files.

 ringlis [ ~ ]$ glxinfo
 name of display: :0.0
 display: :0  screen: 0
 direct rendering: Yes
 server glx vendor string: SGI
 server glx version string: 1.2
 server glx extensions:
     GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating,
     GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,
     GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe,
     GLX_SGIX_swap_barrier, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_SGIX_pbuffer,
 client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
 client glx version string: 1.4

 Notice no IRQs not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 2.0 :), and direct
 rendering = yes.

 glxgears drops from 3300 fps to 240's but its a start.  Still have slight
 border tearing when dragging windows around the desktop.

 Have fun
