I'm at current master for everything: kernel, libsrm, mesa, xserver,
ati, x protos, x libs, etc.

Kernel looks good.

libdrm is configured with --enable-radeon-experimental-api.
xf86-video-ati is configured with --enable-dri --enable-kms.

But I still get this in the Xorg.0.log:

(II) [KMS] drm report modesetting isn't supported.
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
[drm] failed to load kernel module "radeon"
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the DRM
[dri] Disabling DRI.
(II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI2 capable
(II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib/dri/
(II) GLX: Initialized DRISWRAST GL provider for screen 0

What am I missing?
