What will happen on unsupported hardware (NVIDIA, unsupported ATI/Intel
chipsets)? Will the system simply fall back to the existing F9-style
startup sequence. I assume the X.org drivers won't be coded to assume that
kernel modesetting has already run? How will X.org drivers detect this?

How will this interact with proprietary binary drivers from NVIDIA and
ATI, which don't know anything about this new feature?
