It fixes the crash that prevented -rc1 from booting for me, but my
system is still not working with it.

The first problem that shows up is, that after the KMS switches to the
correct video mode (1280x1024 for an DVI attached LCD), the display
begins to flicker. Every 1..2 seconds (guesstimated) the display turns
off and on again. Something in the new powersaving?

This keeps up during userspace bootup, but probably around the time
Xorg starts the display goes blank and does not come back on. I'm not
sure if this final part is really a bug with KMS/radeon/Xorg because
the system died at that point because of the second problem with
2.6.35-rc2, but I wanted to mention it anyway.

The system as a X300 card, that worked perfectly in 2.6.34 (and
previous versions) with KMS:

The second problem is more serious, an OOPS and after that the system
hangs. Ctrl+Alt+Del did not initiate a shutdown, although the magic
SysRq still party worked (A first SysRq+S worked, but SysRq+U or a
second SysRq+S after that did not. SysRq+B still rebooted)

Please ask, if you need more information or have something to try for me.
