FYI, a first 2D-only (and I think XRender acceleration, i.e. 2D 
acceleration, is also not ready yet) UMS-only (userspace mode setting, no 
kernel mode setting) driver for the HD 5xxx (r8xx) series has been released 
to the community by ATI recently. (It seems they're now adopting the Intel 
model where they release driver source code before specs because it's faster 
for them to code the software than to clean up their specs.) 2D and 3D 
acceleration and kernel modesetting (KMS) are presumably coming soon, though 
no date has been given as far as I know.
