using vgaswitcheroo

Trying to load radeon (as a module or in kernel) with modeset not explicitly
disabled causes a kernel NULL pointer dereference if i915 has initialised the
fb console already. 
That behaviour did not occur in 2.6.38, only after upgrading to
(haven't had the time to bisect yet).

If I disable switching in the BIOS and move to the radeon card as exclusive
adapter, everything works fine. with dual graphics stack
