Log of failed boot.

Description of problem:

Transition from fancy Plymouth start screen to X causes system to hang and become unresponsive to any input on a MacBook Pro with X1600, RadeonHD, and kernel mode-setting enabled. The screen looks like it's melting and that's bad. Have to perform hard shutdown to regain system, and must boot with the nomodeset kernel option to obtain a usable system. Plymouth and KMS worked fine from a straight F10 install; problem originated after performing an update via yum.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Name       : xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd
Arch       : x86_64
Version    : 1.2.3
Release    : 1.5.20081112git.fc10

Name       : kernel
Arch       : x86_64
Version    :
Release    : 117.fc10

Name       : xorg-x11-server-Xorg
Arch       : x86_64
Version    : 1.5.3
Release    : 5.fc10

How reproducible:

Use an up-to-date Fedora 10 installation on a MacBook Pro v2 with X1600, RadeonHD, and kernel mode-setting.
Try to boot.
Experience failure.

I've attached an Xorg log of such a failed boot. The final line repeats for 85MB in this case ... naturally, I've truncated it.

An update to F10's radeonhd pushed out earlier last week corrected this issue. Kernel mode-setting is working well for me once more. : )
