         Component: Driver/Radeon

Forwarding this bug from Ubuntu reporter LGB [Gbor Lnrt]:

With KMS enabled, the kernel fails to boot, with errors appearing starting with
the module loaded after the drm module (see sample kernel output below).  If
KMS is disabled, it boots properly.

This is a regression between the maverick kernel and the natty kernel.

[Original Description]
After upgrading maverick (x86 32 bit system but with PAE kernel) system does
not boot, after some disk activity the upper half of the screen is filled with
garbage and no more disk activity. Booting an older kernel (from maverick)
works. Also it work with natty's kernel if I give radeon.modeset=0 parameter at
grub but then there is now hw accel. (glxinfo reports software rendering,
booting natty with maverick's kernel seems to have it, glxinfo reports galium
as the render string then).

This is a Toshiba Satellite A300 notebook with 4G of RAM and video hw:
