Oops. I'll think I'll never get use to the meaning of this big and

Oh, I understood they where linked to the radeonfb surface_cntl
parameter in my archive browsing. Anyway, the report is that as
expected, this does not change anything.

I'm using M. Daenzer dri-trunk server and the patch to read PLL values
from openfirmware. The strange thing is  that the yellowish tint only
appear in dual-headed mode (bi-display or xinerama) with dri disabled.
No problem in mergedfb mode where dri is enabled.

So I guess there is an initialization in dri which is needed in non-dri
mode. I'll try to have a look at that.
