Use "fbdev" as the driver in xfree, that will cause X to
run unaccelerated on top of radeonfb, so it will at least
be able to set mode & colors properly.

I think support for the 9000 have been added to XFree CVS
recently, though that may not yet be in the DRI one (and
so Michel snapshots). The XFree CVS is beeing merged
again into the DRI one now, so this should be fixed soon.
