dmesg output

I have the MacPro5,1 version of Radeon 5770 (see
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Z6QH6M), and have three Dell U2412M
monitors connected to it (two via miniDP-to-DP cables, the third one using the
DVI cable included with the monitor).

X11 sees all three monitors (DisplayPort-0, DisplayPort-1, and DVI-0), but
immediately after KMS during boot, DisplayPort-1 goes into powersave and cannot
be "woken up". DisplayPort1 is the first screen that "lights up" when the
machine is powered on. Once grub kicks in, both DisplayPort-0 and DisplayPort-1
are mirrored, with DVI-0 being off. After KMS, DVI-0 lights up, and
DisplayPort-1 goes to sleep.

Tinkering with the Gnome display settings and/or xrandr will sometimes wake up
DisplayPort-1, but always at the expense of turning off either DisplayPort-0 or
DVI-0 instead. I could never get all three of them to light up under Linux.

I'm using up-to-date stock F16 (3.4.9-2.fc16.x86_64), but have also tried
3.6-rc4 with the same results.

I'm attaching my dmesg output and Xorg.0.log.
