radeon drm: fix agp aperture map offset
all patches you asked for testing included in this release???

I'll send the log in an extra message....

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M10 NT [FireGL
Mobility T2] (rev 80)
I've tested everything expect for vgacon switch ... everything working
STABLE for the first time with modular Xorg (I've being testing since
RC1). All version I've tested until this patch level completely froze my
system. It's a pity that it won't make it into 7.0-final....
I have a Radeon RV100 in an Dual Athlon system. Is there a chance that
this version of the xorg-radeon driver is SMP save if DRM is enabled. I
haven't tested any RC on this machine.
xorg 6.8.2 with gentoo patches actually hangs the system.
