You will need to check if the OpenFirmware pll probing code I use in
radeonfb works on 7500.  Look in the device-tree node and see what the
reference clock is.  If you look in radeon_get_pllinfo() you can see the
OF probe code there.  IIRC on x86 7500 boards, the xclk is ~ 22000, the
ref div is 12 and reference clock is 2700 i belive.  The 7500 is supported
on x86 btw.

If you can log in and get a bootlog that would be helpful.
