I threw up a 32 bit install on my box; again Debian/sid with a
2.6.25-rc4 kernel with DRM enabled. And it seems to work (well,
Xorg.0.log reports DRM enabled and I get a working X server though I've
only tried xterm under it). I don't know if that confirms it's a 32/64
bit issue or if that's just not tickling some other issue, but hopefully
it's a useful datapoint.
