You did a great job (as usual!)

Just to be clear, it was not a bug in the firmware per se, the issue was that we were using a new packet behavior in the 3D driver that didn't exist in the old firmware. You can use the old firmware if you change the 3D driver to use the old behavior of the packet.
Thanks for looking into this ! I got it working as instructed (kernel 3-17-wip, patched ddx, new firmware, glisse's patch for mesa; xorg 1.16 and glamor 0.6). XFCE4 works and gears as well. Yay ! :-)
I just wonder why I had to install glamor 0.6 ? I thought it was integrated into xorg-server 1.16 now ?
And I wonder if open firmware would have solved this problem sooner ?
Did you see glisse's patch for mesa on the bug report ? It might fix those issues.
