Perhaps there is a barrier. OTOH, considering the Test Cases, those
willing to test should be capable of knowing what he/she has for
video.
If needed, some simple tests that gave me positive results:
lsmod | grep ^radeon
lspci -nn | grep -i radeon
etc.

Oddly, just because of this I now realize that all three desktop
systems I use nearly every day have radeon cards in them. Guess I'll
be extra busy this week!
