+ The dri and drm modules both build and load.
+ The mga lkm builds and loads and reports that it's working but there appears
   to be some problem with the interaction between the 2D driver and DRI I
   never did figure it out. (wouldn't mind help either)
+ no other lkm's build though mrg was working on the radeon lkm.

Within the last two months there have been two or three threads that had 
details of the status.  Also, they contained details of how to get the DRI 
bits building from src/x11 (since normal imake on xsrc builds are a headache 
for development).

If anyone gets serious about this I'm happy to answer questions on the src/x11 
side of things i.e. how to turn it on, how to add a card other than radeon 
and mga etc..
