Could you please try booting with it? I would be very surprised if it would not help. We do not currently enable device-specific support for Radeon framebuffer and it probably just uses some generic driver, which is not doing a very good job... The changes enabling it are about to be committed, but it will take a while for them to propagate to the d-i images.
