Intel/AMD/Gallium All Around?
That would be one heck of a note (the motherboard I have lined up as a replacement is G41-based; I'd still be holding on to my HD5450 though, as nothing's wrong with it) to have Intel and AMD using the same driver core on the FOSS side of the GPU street; however, watch nVidia try to throw a spork-shaped spanner into the works...

It is? I didn't notice any brokenness. What I did notice was lovely responsiveness in OpenArena though.

I didn't investigate, but I had too reboot using magic sysrq keys.

I can confirm:
latest r600g is much faster. Still not quite on par with classic mesa on my system, but close.
Unfortunately, the KWin effects are not working properly (very slow, like slideshow), and get automatically disabled after a while. They work fine with classic. But at least you can enable compositing now (a couple of days ago, it refused to do it).

Today with last mesa git (4 october), on my rv620 chipset,
r600g is faster than r600C on openarena benchmark !
LIBGL_DRIVERS_PATH=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri_g/ openarena +exec anholt 2>&1 | egrep -e '[0-9]+ frames'
840 frames 15.4 seconds 54.6 fps 5.0/18.3/59.0/6.9 ms
openarena +exec anholt 2>&1 | egrep -e '[0-9]+ frames'
840 frames 17.7 seconds 47.5 fps 13.0/21.1/58.0/3.0 ms
it's 40% faster than yesterday, so maybe this commits
can explain the performance boost .
i'll try other games tomorrow (alienarena,nexuiz,...)

Just tested, same as you, performance with r600g is now 2/3 of r600c with wy rv740 in arena test in 1680*1050 with high quality, was 1/10 one day ago...

now we just need color tiling support in r600g, and with 2d tiling enabled, it will be a way fast in q3

There is already color tiling support for R600g.
