New info before getting some sleep: The system was using swrast above because
it didnt use kms. If I force KMS by using radeon.modeset=0 on the kcl, radeon
and r600 will be loaded even if i set radeon.agpmode=-1. The system will then
freeze after loading X and showing a few windows. So the improvement w/o AGP is
not freezing immediately.
