Trying to use my radeon x800 (pciid 0x554b) using xf86-video-ati 6.8.0 fails on
startup. I can't determine from the Xorg.log what the actual error was, it's
unclear. I don't have time to dive deep into the code right now, so thought a
bug was the right way to go. I also tried git as of half an hour ago (22:00
(gmt), 1st mar 2008) and got the same error. The version currently shipping
with openbsd is too old, and thus doesn't even detect the card from what I can
see, and leaves me in vesa. 

Just in case i tried with the monitor connected to either dvi port, both fail
(vesa only works with the one, also). Attaching my openbsd dmesg and the

Xserver is,  the only change from OpenBSD default is that dri is
enabled in the X build.
