 Well; I have asked a bit around and found out that KMS does already
work with the Intel 945 and Nvidia 7700 Go graphics cards while there
have been problems with ATI Radeon HD 3450 (Bernhard M. Wiedemann,
i586), ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2700/2600 XT (me, x86_64) and the nVidia
GeForce 6150SE (Larry Finger, x86_64). All test were conducted under a kernel.
 The actual result for the ATI cards was a 'garbeled screen
(pixelry/vertical colorful lines)' (bmwiedemann: this appeared so
quickly that even framebuffer might be affected) while for the nVidia
GeForce the 'lwfinger: main screen looked sheared horizontally as
though the number of pixels per line is wrong' (entire screen was
unreadable though in contrast to the ATI cards it was possible
perceive that something is there e.g. f.i. whether a console has been
launched or not.). For the nVidia Gforce the bootsplash screen was
additionally displayed much too narrow ('lwfinger: The left-hand side
is about in the middle of the screen and there is a 3-4 cm empty strip
at the right.').

 ( Unfortunately the original more elaborate message I wanted to post
here was lost due to a bugzilla crash:
