The driver has just lost its user-mode support; it will be KMS only
I do wish they wouldn't do this. It essentially prevents me from using a recent kernel. With my card, KMS causes a segfault in the server, but it works just fine without KMS. I understand why they want to do it. The non-KMS code is messy, and they don't want to maintain it. But it works, in places where KMS currently doesn't.
