I'm still interested in the answer to this.

i915 on a powerpc, eh?  What was I thinking?

I've now talked briefly to the DRI and powerpc upstream maintainers, and
the answer is that radeon is mostly broken on at least 32-bit powerpc
while nouveau is in better shape but not quite stable yet.  So I'm going
to revert most of the FB configuration changes I made in 2.6.37-1 for
the next upload to unstable.
