no drm on Radeon Xpress 200M

Xorg.0.log with KMS enabled (default)
Description of problem:
I can't get HW 3D acceleration. With KMS enabled X starts and everything works, except for drm. I do get software rendering through mesa. Xorg.0.log says
"(EE) RADEON(0): [drm] Could not create vertex/indirect buffers list"
With kernel parm nomodeset I can boot into runlevel 3, but X locks up at start, and I can only power-cycle the notebook.
I had this problem with the xorg-x11-server packages from stable (1.6.4-0.1), so I upgraded from updates-testing, but this didn't resolve it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
with KMS: no drm
without KMS: X lockup
3D HW accel works.

/var/log/messages from lockup w/ nomodeset
With Fedora 12 the X lockup is gone. That is, I can now start X *and* get acceleration, but I still need nomodeset.
