radeon randr 1.2

Okay I've pushed the initial radeon randr 1.2 code into the ATI tree in the randr-1.2 branch, this builds against master X server.

However I've never been happy with many parts of that code as it still relies on the old radeon system of having 2 CRTCs mapped to 2 outputs and this isn't really suitable for a flexible randr driver, however it is also less likely to regress heavily..

With this in mind I started to go a different direction and started the randr-1.2-tng branch in my personal ATI repository,

This removes the whole idea of only having two outputs and tries to allocate an output per type of output (so Analog, Digital, LFP, TV), and assigning those to a connector.. I need to do DDC optimisation so DVI connectors (which have Analog and Digital outputs on them) only do DDC once...
