Alex's right - at this particular point nothing of this code is
particularly useful for users. OTOH, if you love experimenting, testing
r600_demo could be useful. RV770 works fine here, so in case anybody
finds that it doesn't work for his/her card, a report would be welcome.

Also, so far nobody verified on notebook chipsets (RS780 is the only
one, AFAIK) - but you would need to hack r600_demo.c a bit with the PCI
IDs at least.
