Thanks for the update, very useful.

If it's PCI IDs you want, I'm your man - I have 291 IDs for
Radeon-generation cards overall, and 97 for r500 and r600
series...fairly close to the complete collection, I think.

I think it's going to be a bit late for Mandriva 2008, unfortunately (we
hit code freeze this weekend), but never mind, I'll start playing with
it as soon as code's available...

the only question I haven't seen a final answer to yet, I think - what's
going to happen with the existing avivo driver now? It's just dropped,
merged into the new project...?
