ATI graphics card not being detected properly by F17 BETA or current update

I have a laptop with a radeon display that's been working fine using
f16, but now the best I get is VESA.

I've tried updating but it still boots with the blue/white bars at the
bottom, instead of the graphic boot and the best resolution I can get
is 1400x900 (the display is 1920x1080).

I'm not sure if I need to pass something at start-up, but this seems
like a significant regression as the display worked well with f16.

Should I bugzilla this?
