Right, but starting off a port of the DFBsd stuff would be a big step backwards in the base support.  Having tried to do a quick port of that in the past, and looking at kib's work, I'd say kib's work is much more functional.  At best, you might be able to cherry-pick some radeon support, but it would need some minor reworking to cope with the differences between the two APIs.

My problem with the PCBSD 20120505 snapshot is, that it trys to enable KMS for my Radeon HD 2600 PRO card, and falls back to vesa, even if I try to generate my own xorg.conf file.
