(along with the ATI kernel mode-setting that can already be found in
Fedora 10). More on this is also available from the Fedora Wiki. ATI
kernel mode-setting has been enabled since Fedora 10, but in Leonidas
the support will be extended to support KMS on ATI R100/200 hardware.
Kernel mode-setting allows for a nice, flicker-free boot process with
the Plymouth project, fast VT switching, improved suspend and resume
support, and other benefits. Kernel mode-setting is also a prerequisite
for running the Wayland Display Server. "
