Hmm I don't have pcictl ... is this a port or ??

When I look at the X11 startup it says:
(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) ATI Technologies Inc M22 [Radeon Mobility M300] rev 0, 
Mem @ 0xc0000000/27, 0xb0100000/16, I/O @ 0x3000/8

So different version slightly .. but same basic chip I think.

And right now I don't have time to investigate.. I have
some deadlines looming :-(

Maybe in June I can look at it :-)
