I hope not. It would be foolish of Gentoo to use bleeding edge CVS

DRI reinitialization for the radeon driver is still a patch
(http://penguinppc.org/~daenzer/DRI/radeon-reinit.diff) because it
wasn't accepted for integration in the current form.

As others have pointed out, it must be the AGPMode (it never occurred to
me that this could help for sleep because higher AGP transfer rates
traditionally tended to be problematic...) because ForcePCIMode defaults
to false and you can't use the UniNorth agpgart without
http://penguinppc.org/~daenzer/DRI/drm-ioremapagp.diff . Are you using
that? If not, that would be interesting because the AGPMode option would
seem to have an effect without AGP GART actually being used.
