While I haven't tested this specific patchset, I figured I'd pipe up with 
a "yay, it works" regarding ATI IGP 200 (RADEON 7000) drm support on my 
Toshiba Satellite A60 laptop.  When I was running FreeBSD 5.x and Xorg 
6.x I was never able to get a working agp0, drm0, or DRM/DRI.  (There was 
a working agp0 in the early 5.2/5.3 days, but then it disappeared.  Even 
with that, though, DRM/DRI in X never worked.)

Updating the laptop to RELENG_6 from early Dec, xorg-server-snap, and the 
latest dri-devel port now gives me:
drm0 at pci1:5:0:  class=0x030000 card=0xff101179 chip=0x44371002 rev=0x00 
    vendor   = 'ATI Technologies Inc'
    device   = 'Radeon Mobility 7000 IGP'
    class    = display
    subclass = VGA

agp0 at pci0:0:0   class=0x060000 card=0x00000000 chip=0xcab31002 rev=0x05 
    vendor   = 'ATI Technologies Inc'
    class    = bridge
    subclass = HOST-PCI

Running glxgears at 1024x768x16 gives me a decent 35 fps, compared to the 
1 fps I used to get.  :)

All that's left is to get the IDE controller working at better than ATA33
