I was hoping Michael was/is talking about PowerVR drivers... I don't see how Llano drivers can be that ironic even in that context, AMD's been good about such things lately.
so yes you pull other stuff first thats fine really. maybe the open-source version of the firmware isn't ready yet.
Bridgman you should work faster ;-) we really waiting for that cool Firmware stuff.
Some hardware products have microcode images built into the chips, others require microcode images to be loaded at power-up, and some (including a number of CPUs) use a combination of built-in initial code plus driver-loaded patches. None of it is open.

I wait for the other mighty magic stuff. the time will show me your little secret dude
"How is that ironic ? "
the ironic part is: I'm wrong and fail at time-traveling you still broke my luck by dicing the cubes.
If its not the firmware then its the HD2900 h264 shader based decoder you opensource ATI Avivo!!!
