Thanks, but please always follow up to the mailing list. I'm doing so

Anyway, I can see a few problems:

      * X uses the generic vesa driver. Try the radeon driver instead. 
      * The kernel is configured to use radeonfb, which precludes the
        radeon driver from enabling KMS. This may work, but it's
        generally recommended to disable radeonfb and enable KMS.
