Ok, so at least I didn't break that.

No signal or dark monitor?

Ok, that matches what Valery got.

This is what I wanted to see - the model is detected correctly...

... and the workaround is enabled as intended. Leaves the question why
it doesn't work. Just to be sure - do you get anything different with
the updated Xorg driver but genfb instead of radeonfb in the kernel?
( I don't expect you to, other than a usable console on boot, but who
knows. Also, would be nice to know if the driver restores the hardware
to a working console on exit )

Also, do you get anything useful when playing with Option "MacModel"
"mini-external'? Or any of the other supported options ( see man radeon
) ?

Finally, please build a kernel with radeonfb and options
RADEONFB_DEBUG, run it with the DVI monitor and mail me all the debug
spam that will dump into the message buffer ( which will be a lot ).
With that I should be able to determine how exactly the port is wired
up by OF and hopefully replicate that in radeonfb.

have fun
