All UMS code removed from xf86-video-ati two weeks ago

I vaguely recall hearing about this, but I wasn't aware they ripped
_that_ much code out until now.  I was browsing the Xorg tree as the
first steps on the long road of getting back to where I was two years
ago with regard to my comprehension of this whole thing--which wasn't
that stellar, btw.

I feel awkward saying, "We have to do something!@#" when I am not in a
position to immediately do much of anything, but, umm, "we have to do
something!@#". ;-)

And to think I just purchased an r430 card in preparation for resuming
where I left off with regard to this quixotic venture.  Who wants to
come back to 2006 with me?!?!

radeon: drop all UMS/DRI1/XAA/overlay support.

This overhauls the radeon driver and removes all the old UMS-only
code, it drops all the UMS, DRI1, XAA, overlay Xv, video capture, tv
tuners There are probably a lot more cleanups that will fall out of
this afterwards. So far this is compile/build tested. Signed-off-by:
