           Summary: X hangs at startup with Radeon X800 GTO (PCIe) with DRI
           Product: xorg
           Version: 7.1
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: nphilipp at redhat.com

When starting X (with DRI enabled), the screen just goes blank and the keyboard
is dead. Xorg consumes 100% CPU and can't be killed... well it doesn't really
go away, just the terminal shows it is killed, but there is an Xorg process
with the same pid hogging the CPU. When run trough strace (before killing), it
just endlessly does:

ioctl(9, 0x6444, 0)                     = -1 EBUSY (Device or resource busy)

FD #9 is /dev/dri/card0 (as is FD #10 FWIW). My X version is:

I found some oddities in the log file, namely that a) the driver was somehow
confused by the cards secondary bus ID, b) it didn't recognize the Radeon X800
GTO as such, but as an X850 PRO and c) somehow used only 128MB of the 256MB

  (II) Primary Device is: PCI 07:00:0
  (--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
  (WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:7:0:1) found
  (--) Chipset ATI Radeon X850 PRO (R480) (PCIE) found
  (II) resource ranges after xf86ClaimFixedResources() call:


  (II) RADEON(0): Page flipping disabled
  (II) RADEON(0): Will try to use DMA for Xv image transfers
  (II) RADEON(0): Generation 2 PCI interface, using max accessible memory
  (II) RADEON(0): Detected total video RAM=262144K, accessible=131072K (PCI
  (--) RADEON(0): Mapped VideoRAM: 131072 kByte (256 bit DDR SDRAM)
  (II) RADEON(0): Color tiling enabled by default

The output of lspci -v also shows that only 128MB are mapped.

I could get X to work when I disabled DRI (I used "install radeon /bin/false"
in /etc/modprobe.conf to do that). I'll attach xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log, strace
output (shortened) shortly.
