I only enabled that previous (disabled in spec file)
'disable-dri-patch' and disabled the new one. Only few lines in .spec
(i do believe i wrote something %changelog too as i usually do).

###%if %{build_rhel4}
####%patch1215 -p0 -b .ati-radeon-disable-dri
###%endif
###%patch1216 -p0 -b .ati-radeon-7000-disable-dri
####CentOS-4/alpha
%ifarch alpha
%patch1215 -p0 -b .ati-radeon-disable-dri
%else
%patch1216 -p0 -b .ati-radeon-7000-disable-dri
%endif

So i enabled the %patch1215 again and disabled the later 7000-patch
(which does have something else in it too). Quick hack which made me
confident releasing the DVD/CDs as it should not render boxes unusable
after firstboot. Makign updates later on would be much more easy that
explaing every installer 'why his/her radeon just isn't working'.

This is on my TODO-list too. If my now running sparc-patch holds up now
w/o hanging the box on _high_ load after few hours of hammering, i'll
be much more open to work on these alpha issues :)
