Yes, thats right, but ati and radeon driver both neglecting drm in X.

pciconf -lv shows:

vgapci0 at pci0:1:0:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x202b17aa chip=0x71c41002
rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'ATI Technologies Inc'
    device     = 'Mobility FIREGL V5200'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

There is no vesa0 neither drm0.

In dmesg there is no difference using verbose booting ...
