Really interesting release for ATI users. Finally we have 3D acceleration on r6xx/r7xx class chips. Could not get KMS to work on my main card, but works beautifully on my laptop's 200M, not to mention awesome DRI2. Too bad my ralink card is acting funky with the kernel, so I had to revert until I find a fix.

CFQ latency improvements? I never noticed that from the commits. Sounds like I'll be trying out CFQ again, as I am currently on BFQ.
