I think it's a very good idea to release.

I tested exa on my RS780 and it worked good, but sometimes there were hard
lockups, for example when starting/closing a presentation in OpenOffice or
moving the xv accelerated movie window out of the screen and make it bigger. I
was told on the IRC channel that this is "the DRI issue" and it's known. If
this bug also exists on R500 this is important to fix before the release IMO.
If the bug in in DRM, why does the bug not appear in the radeon driver then?
(Or is it there, too?). Anyway, after a few hard lockups I decide that DRI
wasn't stable yet and returned to shadowfb.

Also it would be nice to have the monitor name and size in the gnome
application for selecting the monitor and rotate and so on. This is also on
radeon possible for a long time and last time I checked radeonhd it was not

And one more thing: There are many bug reports that there is no screen on many
laptops with two graphics cards. If this is an issue in radeonhd it should be
fixed, too, because in the future even more notebooks will have two cards.

Thanks for reading and thanks for this awesome driver!
