Using Xorg-video-ati from both GIT and release 6.9.0 built from source with
Xorg 7.4/XServer 1.5.0

xvinfo shows that XV is present and usable, however, any program that makes use
of XVideo (Xine, for instance) crashes with the message:

  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (XVideo)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  19 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  2307

xvinfo shows:

Just to reiterate that this happens with both GIT and release versions of
Xorg-video-ati driver, and that the hardware is an RS690M based X1200 Radeon in
my laptop. Using X11 SHM driver on any video player works just fine, though
with the degraded performance you might expect from it in fullscreen.
