I can't say definitively if modesetting will work with the radeon driver
on FreeBSD, but I can say definitively that it doesn't provide any 2D or
3D acceleration. Acceleration requires KMS on HD5xxx GPUs and higher,
and that includes the fusion APUs.
On a somewhat related note... I heard that the work the FreeBSD
Foundation and iXsystems is paying for in regards to KMS
is limited to Intel GPUs. Can someone please confirm or deny that
depressing bit of information?
