What about downgrading to see whether that happened back then already? It might be nice to see whether that's “just” a regression from a known-working version. Could you also give the 2.6.32-4-$arch kernel from sid a try? It might have some DRM-related fixes (backported from 2.6.33 and maybe later), which may help. Mraw, KiBi.
