[SOLVED] x.org server enters infinite loop with mplayer -vo xv

Back on Jan 6th I posted that after upgrading to 9.1-rel, mplayer
using -vo xv causes a system hang.

Turns out that disabling "DMAForXv" in xorg.conf solves this.

This setting was not needed in 8.2-rel which also enables DMA by
default.  So what broke?

Video card is ATI Radeon RS690 X1270 IGP.  Original posting has
links to Xorg.0.log etc.
