I don't know if this will help you, but it works for me on powerpc with
a Radeon Mobility M6  (should be about the same as a 7000). The only
difference I see is that I have radeonfb compiled in. In case it
matters, I only use xlibmesa-gl1-dri-trunk and
xserver-xfree86-dri-trunk, not the drm-trunk modules (the kernel driver
is up to date in 2.6). 
My PC with a radeon 7000 is still on 2.4 for now.
