If the radeonhd maintainer would even add kms detection and refuse to
start it would help, the fact that with kms loaded, radeonhd cannot
work doesn't seem to have made it back into the Fedora package.

Not at all, radeonhd has no kernel modesetting support and does a lot of
stuff in its own unique way. Please test an F12 LiveCD or something as
soon as you can and we'll figure this out. Anyone using radeonhd is only
causing themselves long term problems and I encourage them to switch to
radeon if they want any support going forward.
