It would be nice to have my radeon patches tested & applied too as they
basically make the difference between working and non working setup on a
lot of ppc machines (and possibly other non-x86). Most of them are
obvious bug fixes, the only one potentially disrupting, afaik, is the
LVDSProbePLL one which slightly changes the panel detection, but with
some testing, I'm quite confident I can fix any problem that arrises
caused by it.
