Hi John,

currently the branch I do all my work on is my private tree in the
"radeon-randr12-v3" branch,

I'm currently testing on an r200 I have, and it works mostly, however
my laptop is busted, I'd appreciate any backtraces of crashes,
especially with gdb attached and debugging enabled..

Also any problems with the master branch should be reported.. I'm not
going to merge randr into the master until the shared code is in the x
server master...
