Drm related lines from dmesg for KMS boot

Sorry for posting three comments in one hour! It just struck me that actually there is no sort of splash screen with KMS enabled, and the colours described by Ancoron appear very early in the boot ( though seem to be just a blank screen for me with the rc3 kernel. ) Therefore it may be that the problem is when the radeon module is set up initially during kernel boot rather than when X loads.

I really don't know the relationship between the "radeon" module and the Xorg drivers, and so this may not be the right place if it is the module - if that is the case a pointer as to where it should be posted would be appreciated.

Again though, just in case, the drm related messaged from dmesg during a KMS enabled boot are attached. Without KMS there are only two lines, which I guess is expected.
