:/ Sorry, my last paragraph was a little ambigous.

On my old debian 2.6.32 kernel, this worked swimmingly (module loaded nearly
instantly, screen resolution jumped up). 
On the debian 2.6.37 kernel modprobe hangs, I stopped timing after ten minutes,
the screen doesn't resize as usual for KMS but lsmod lists
radeon/drm/drm_kms_helper. dmesg again shows only RS780 Microcode being loaded.

In each case, before starting, I checked with lsmod to make sure radeon was not

Since my last comment, I also checked Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35), and it has
graphics issues as well - it is much harder to see what is happening because
plymouth gives me a blank screen, but it also has a modprobe timeout,
apparently no KMS loading, and firmware seems to be available in /lib/firmware.
