Regression: radeon x600 text console font not restored

I am pretty sure, the culprit is the WITH_VGAHW change from Aug 26. The
modular build doesn't define that macro yet, so the VGA font restore is
disabled at compile time. Since the vgahw module seems to be compiled
unconditionally in the modular build, it's probably safe to define
WITH_VGAHW unconditionally. I'm just not sure where would be the best
place. I've added -DWITH_VGAHW to AM_CFLAGS
in .../xf86-video-ati/src/ and that fixes the problem for me.
