Ok, it was pointed out to me, that xorg-server-snap won't work with this
driver, and I'm happy to report that it works rock solid with the
xorg-server port.

I even got TV out working without a fuzz, only thing missing is XV on
the TV screen (somehow, there is no XV_SWITCHCRT attribute as with the
radeon(4) driver).

Anyway, THANK YOU for this Christmas present ;]

You might wanna mentio the xorg-server-snap incaompatibility in the
README and this is my hardware, which is now known to work:

acpi_video0 at pci1:0:0:   class=0x030000 card=0x20011028 chip=0x4e501002 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'ATI Technologies Inc'
    device   = 'Mobility Radeon 9700 (M10 NP) (RV350)'
    class    = display
    subclass = VGA

Which is worse: ignorance or apathy?
Don't know. Don't care.
