This bug seems to be both a KMS bug and a Xorg bug. I can get boot into 
runlevel 3 but the display isn't initialized properly and the only way I 
got some of the debug information attached to the bug was by blindly 
logging in, setting up sshd and then logging in from another machine.

The second problem is that when I boot with nomodeset I get to the desktop 
but it is so slow it cannot be used for regular work. I'm not sure if that 
is a bug or because the radeon driver now requires KMS for any sort of 2D
