driver. It is committed to HEAD but I have been testing it with the
Fedora Core 3 + devel packages and it seems to work fine.
it introduces the "BIOSHotkeys" option which is off by default.
it would be nice to see this added to xorg-x11 package. Would help

Radeon bios hotkeys patch
Please submit a bug report to X.Org bugzilla in the "xorg"
component, and attach the patch there for consideration of
inclusion into the XORG-6_8-branch
If X.Org approves the patch for the 6.8.2 release, it will
automatically be included in Fedora Core 4, and Fedora Core 3
future updates. If it doesn't get into 6.8.2, but is accepted
into the CVS branch for future 6.8.x releases, we will consider
adding it to our rpm packages also.
Once you have filed your report upstream, please paste the URL
here and we will track the issue in the X.org bugzilla, and
review X.Org developer's comments, etc.
Setting status to "NEEDINFO", and waiting for upstream bug URL
Once someone files a request in X.Org bugzilla for the inclusion of this
feature into the X.Org stable branch of CVS, it will be reviewed by the
X.Org stable branch release manager for consideration. If the release
manager decides to include the feature in the stable branch, it might
get included in the 6.8.3 release.
I'm setting the status of this request to "WONTFIX", as we will not include
a feature of this nature without it being accepted into the 6.8 branch
of CVS upstream first.
If someone pastes the URL to the upstream bug report for this request here,
and sets this bug back to "REOPENED", we will track the issue, and if it
gets committed to CVS stable branch, we will also consider including it
in our future rpm packages.
