	Er really ?

pci1: <ATI model 5157 graphics accelerator> at 0.0 irq 11
drm0: <ATI Radeon QW RV200 7500> port 0xd800-0xd8ff mem
0xd7000000-0xd700ffff,0xd8000000-0xdfffffff irq 11 at device 0.0 on pci1

	works fine with DRI in FreeBSD and DragonFly - my 9200SE OTOH
does not like the Asus/Via motherboards I have and locks up with either if
DRI is enabled. I have seen a lot of reports of the same behaviour under
Linux too and reports of the same card working fine with DRI under FreeBSD
on different motherboards. I did hear a rumour that some changes in the
FreeBSD code for the AGP chipset involved might make it work - but I
haven't anything running that recent a FreeBSD and I haven't got round to
trying to port the changes to DragonFly.
