I tried this out when 8.11 came out.
The bad kernel module was the radeon driver being loaded. I initially tried
a) Adding "blacklist radeon" to /etc/modprobe.d/ati
b) uninstalling the xorg*ati*rpm package
c) removing the "rhgb" and adding "nomodeset" options to /boot/grub/menu.lst to stop the graphical boot
However the radeon module was still loaded
I then (after the above) rebuilt initrd , and after a reboot - no ati module!
I then installed the fglrx drivers (I tried both the feed on rpmfusion, as well as an install from the official driver, but in neither case could I get sensible behaviour

Note that interestingly I had no issues with changing xorg to run "radeonhd" instead of "radeon" -- not that radeonhd was any better, indeed I think ati works the best.
Overally the opensource ati is working fairly well for desktop. 3D comes and goes dependent on the kernel/ati updates from the update feeds. more on that here -> http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=204296
Well radeon/drm may not be loaded, thats clear. If it is in the initrd you can unload it maybe or change the initrd. On debian blacklisting and then
would work, no idea what fedora uses.
There was a fix reported on fedoraforum
Didn't change anything for me, though.
