Not really. I'm waiting for the long overdue (unfortunately) support
for mode setting in the DRM to obsolete radeonfb and finally get rid of
it ...

As far as I'm concerned, it's on life support mode... I make sure it
still works for stuff it supports today but I'm not actively developing
support for new stuff.

I'm not sure where the X700/800 support patches went tho... I suppose
they could be merged at one point.
