i'm curious as to how many bugzilla reports exist for this very
topic. seriously, search bugzilla for the combination of "radeon" and
"kms" -- there's no way all those reports represent unique issues:
You may be surprised. KMS issues (graphics issues in general...) are
very hardware dependent. Two bugs with apparently identical symptoms -
especially when the symptom is as broad as 'feature X doesn't work' or
'the system doesn't boot' - can have entirely different causes on
Given that, we tend to be quite conservative when marking bugs as dupes
in triaging X bugs, and leave it to the developers where possible.
