If it is that simple then yes, we should be able to fix the radeon kms
driver, then drop the quirk once all kms drivers are fixed.

But IIRC there are some radeon-sepcific calls used by the radeon xorg
driver affected too (thats why the commit message says "... both xorg and
kernel drivers ..."), so fixing it for radeon isn't that easy ...

cheers,
Gerd
