If I'm reading the changelogs right, I believe any 2.6.34 build prior to
2.6.34-14 actually has *older* drm code than F13 kernels do, because F13
kernels got a backport of drm-next (drm-core-next.patch) while F14
kernels prior to that date don't. So you may want to try 2.6.34-14 as
well to check if it still works with that...
