I absolutely need to spend the time to do serious testing of various
Macs with recent radeon code ...

One of the things I want to add is a way to provide the connector table
via the config file.

I've (slowly) started building a list of known "Mac" radeon card in
radeonfb with associated connector table and I want to expose that so
that distro installer can just copy it to the X config file.
