the following patches add UVD support for older ASICs (RV6xx, RS80, RV70). For everybody wanting to test it I've also uploaded a branch to FDO: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~deathsimple/linux/log/?h=uvd-r600-release
Additionally to the patches you need UVD firmware as well, which can be found at the usual location: http://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/radeon_ucode/
A small Mesa patch is needed as well, cause the older hardware doesn't support field based output of video frames. So unfortunately VDPAU/OpenGL interop won't work either.
We can only provide best effort support for those older ASICs, but at least on my RS80 based laptop it seems to work perfectly fine.
