Is this error also reported without the patch?

A noticeable difference between your Radeon HD 2400 and my FireGL X1
cards is that the RV610 GPU in HD 2400 doesn't natively support AGP.
Indeed, RV610 is natively a PCIe chipset, AGP support being brought by
the Rialto PCIe -> AGP bridge on the back of the card PCB.
By contrast, the R300 VPU in my FireGL card is a native AGP(Pro) chipset.

Could this explain the AGP and PCIe-related errors you're reporting?
