Fresh install of Debian Stretch 9.  X11 starts in software rendering
mode.  The same laptop with Ubuntu 16.04 runs with hardware rendering.

Any hints on how what is needed for hardware rendering with this
hardware combination in Debian?  I am sure this hardware used to be
fully supported and therefore hardware support must have been dropped
at some point.

The current FOSS ati driver works fine on my T60p with V5250, installed first time.

what does inxi -Fixw show in the graphics section as current driver on your machine.
