    I believe the intent is to remove the DRI1 code paths, so R100/R200 would run with DRI2/KMS. If you are still finding issues with the KMS paths relative to UMS please make sure the relevent bug tickets on fdo are up to date.

      Support for r1xx (radeon 3D driver) and r2xx (r200 3d driver) will still exist, but support for UMS (DRI1) will be dropped. Dropping the DRI1 support will however, allow us to support tiling in r1xx/r2xx with KMS much easier which should bring KMS performance up to or above UMS.

        Thanks for that clarification. It's nice to get info directly from those doing the work.
