Is there, anywhere, any documentation with reasonable information on what
settings in the xorg.conf and radeon manpages no longer apply in xorg.conf with
kms, and what the parallel radeon.* kernel commandline options are?

Either updating the manpages, or a separate kms manpage (with suitable SEE ALSO
section mentions from existing manpages), would be /wonderful/.  Or a kernel
Documentation/radeon.txt or kms.txt file.  (And, couldn't all the kernel
display/graphics related Docs be moved into a display/graphics/video subdir? 
Seems about time.)

Because I really feel like a blind man simply poking things to see what
happens, reverse engineering what shouldn't need to be, if you will.  Plus
chance comments like this, giving me info I had no idea about.  Surely I'm not
alone, and a good many "bugs" could be eliminated if people only knew about
various available settings.

Thanks.  Useful information.

Now if only that were documented in the manpages... =:^(
It does explain why modes below 4x wouldn't work, tho. =:^)
