#480 Radeon locks up with complex GL apps

ATI OpenGL (71)
Hod McWuff

I just ported the latest CVS drm-kernel code into the
2.6.2 vanilla kernel. Many apps work fine -
xscreensaver, prboom, SpectrumGL, but some others lock
the X server up hard, such as tuxracer and BillardGL.

I can SSH into the machine, but nothing is in any of
the logs, just the application and X server both have
to be sigkilled. Usually after the X server dies, the
machine locks up altogether a few seconds later.

I have no idea how to track this one down. Suggestions,

    The attached patch will make all changes necessary to
    compile under 2.6. However, the Makefile.linux26 is still
    broken. You will have to:

    cp *.c *.h /usr/src/linux-2.6.2/drivers/char/drm

    and then rebuild your modules from *WITHIN* the kernel.
    Building outside the kernel make doesn't work.
