 The previously-noted hack/workaround adversely affects my ThinkPad A31p.
 It does not suffer from an almost-black-on-black framebuffer console
 display, but the hack still produces unpleasant color effects on the
 X display.
 While tolerable for virtual terminasls (mine at least), it makes colored
 text on some simple web sites hard to read and graphics-rich websites
 practically unusable.
 (I produced a local patch to apply to netbsd-7 since I wanted to run
 that on some affected machines.  Guess I'll revert that and stick with
 "userconf=disable radeon" for now.)
 riastradh@ recently made changes to a couple of "crtc" items in HEAD.
 Perhaps they'll have some effect?  I've updated and am building now.
