SubjectX and 2.4.0 problem (video bios probing?)

Hi there. Having been running the 2.4.0-test kernels on my laptop, I
quickly upgraded to 2.4.0 when it came out. A problem quickly arose:

X won't start.

Under 2.4.0-test12 it works fine.

Under 2.4.0 it exits after trying to load the int10 module...

from 2.4.0-test12 (and all others):

(II) Loading sub module "int10"
(II) LoadModule: "int10"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libint10.a

(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libint10.a

ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.2
(EE) ATI(0): Unable to initialise int10 interface.
(II) UnloadModule: "ati"
(II) UnloadModule: "int10"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libint10.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Things I have ruled out:

- Compiled with redhat 7's gcc 2.96 snapshot, and also with kgcc. No
diffrence.

- did a cat /proc/pci, lspci, and cat /proc/inturrupts and compaired
2.4.0 and 2.4.0-test12 and they were identical.

- Without changing anything besides the kernel X works. If I am in
2.4.0-test12 it's fine, if I am in 2.4.0 (final) it fails.

Further debugging, requests for logs, patches, or ideas are welcome.

This laptop is a dell inspiron 5000 (not 5000e). It has worked just
fine with X until now. It's a redhat 7 + all errata. It has
XFree86-4.0.1a on it.

thanks for any suggestions.
