Considering the current state of video (Xorg, KMS, et. al.) I wouldn't
be worried as much abotu regressions from alpha, but just getting stuff
to work period.
I have a rv280 and rv530 based cards and I regularly have to switch between
using nomodeset and not using nomodeset to get things working reasonably
after kernel updates. I see glxgears causing lockups on the rv280, xorg
using an inordinate amount of cpu time, have to rebuild my own copy of
the ati driver for the rv280 because the EDID detection of the attached
monitor doesn't work correctly, and at times (but not today) have to do
numerous X restarts (using C-A-BS) when the system comes up to get a display
that isn't black (typically with no signal).
