This is encouraging.

Haven't tried fbdev on Alpha with 7.1, but it was definitely broken with
an ATI card and 7.0.  Usually (but not always) it was broken *less* than
for the ati driver case in that I could at least switch back to a virtual
console tty and stop X11 without locking up the machine.  Somewhere near
7.0.23 with a 2.6.18-rcX kernel, fbdev would lock the machine solid.
