You may be right: Still using the patched driver I set radeon.agpmode=-1 and
the system came up with X using radeon and swrast. Seems like radeon.agpmode=-1
switches off dri / the r600 classic driver. A few switches to the fb console
broke the vt session, but I was always able to switch back to X.
Unfortunately I cannot get AGP to work with the radeon driver. Using really
conservative settings in the AGP bridge, the driver still doesn't boot without
radeon.agpmode=-1. I used the following BIOS settings to get moderate timings
AGP Mode=4x
VLINK 8x disable
AGP 3.0 calibration cycle enabled
DBI output for AGP transactions disable

The hardware itself should be pretty stable - I ran a heavy Furmark stress test
under windows to check for robustness.

Any ideas how to debug the AGP issue?
