The X11 driver itself does not need to be ported, as it is only
architecture dependand, but not OS dependand. So the x86 driver will
work with our X.org (as long as the X.org versions are compatible).
The only thing what needs to be ported is the kernel interface.
Have a look at http://www.leidinger.net/FreeBSD/ATI/ for some
preliminary results. Note, I'm not the author, I just host the files.
The author doesn't work at this ATM, so anyone is free to pick it up
and try to proceed further.
Fortune favors the lucky.
