To note, KMS is now available for both R600 and R700, not just R600 as spotted in a few places (they are basically same hardware with a few extra tweaks in the latter). That also means it 2.6.32 covers all ATI/AMD graphics adapters currently on the market, including HD 4800 series. The just announced, not yet on sale HD 5xxx is probably something for 2.6.33.

How about older ATI adapters? How far back does KMS reach, or is relevant? (He says as he looks over at the ancient laptop that uses an RV200.)

my understanding is that KMS is going to be used for all cards suppored by the ATI drivers (and eventually, all drivers period, but it's being implemented a driver at a time)
