1) how do you find out if the machine use e.g. radeon or fglrx/nv or nvidia,
which normaly show complete different behavior?
2) fglrx is closed source, you never know what change with new versions and
what this cause on the machine. HAL don't know anything about fglrx and the
different versions of the driver which can show different behavior (one
version may need a quirk, an other other quirks or none). The same for the
proprietary nvidia driver.
